State House, Boston, April 1, 1920. 
To His Excellency the Governor and the Honorable Council. 

The Forty-first Annual Report of the State Board, of Charity, 
covering the year from December 1, 1918, to November 30, 
1919, is herewith respectfully presented. 

ROBERT W. KELSO, 

Executive Director. 



REPORT 

OF THE 

State Board of Charity 



Part I 



General Work of the Board 



ORGANIZATION OF THE REPORT. 



The following report is divided for convenience into three 
parts. 

Part I deals with the general work of the Board, its duties, 
both supervisory and administrative. This part is the main 
text of the report, and is published only with the full report. 

Part II is devoted entirely to the Board's duties with refer- 
ence to private charitable enterprises. It is published as a 
separate pamphlet and serves as a handbook of the incorporated 
charities of the Commonwealth. It contains an introductory 
analysis of the year's investigations of petitions for the incor- 
poration of charitable enterprises under Acts of 1910, chapter 
181; also an account of the inspection of charitable corpora- 
tions, under Acts of 1909, chapter 379. The main body of this 
part of the report is given up to abstracts of the annual returns 
made to the Board by private charitable corporations under 
the requirements of Revised Laws, chapter 84, section 14, as 
amended by Acts of 1913, chapter 82. 

Part III contains an introductory analysis of the year's 
inspections of almshouses, together with an abstract of condi- 
tions found at each institution. At the end of this part is a 
chapter on poor relief, which contains text and tabulated anal- 
ysis of the returns of poor persons relieved, made by the re- 
spective cities and towns under the provisions of Revised Laws, 
chapter 81, section 40. Part III is published as a separate 
pamphlet, and serves as a handbook for almshouse wardens 
and other local public relief officials. 

As provided by statute, 2,000 copies of the full report are 
printed. There are issued in addition 1,000 copies of Part II 
and 500 copies of Part III. 

For convenience in publishing, the index to each part is to 
be found at the end of its own text instead of at the end of 
the book.

4 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

the department in 1863. Under chapter 350 of the General 
Acts of 1919, effective upon the first day of the new year, the 
Board ceases to exist, and its functions are carried over to a 
new Department of Public Welfare. Readers of this forty- 
first report should note, therefore, that the change of title does 
not break the continuity of this long series of reports of public 
charities in Massachusetts. 

DUTIES OF THE BOARD. 

The duties of the Board may be divided into two main groups, 
namely, supervisory and administrative. As a consequence of 
these obligations the Board is also required to report and pub- 
lish the results of its work, with tabulated statements regarding 
the number of poor persons relieved in the Commonwealth at 
public expense, together with the cost thereof. Finally, it is 
empowered, in like manner with other boards and commissions, 
to recommend to the Legislature such changes in existing laws 
and the enactment of such new measures as it deems advisable. 
In more specific form the supervisory duties comprise : — 
The visitation and inspection of the State Infirmary at 
Tewksbury; the State Farm at Bridgewater; the Norfolk 
State Hospital for Inebriates at Norfolk; the Lyman School for 
Boys at Westborough; the Industrial School for Boys at 
Shirley; the State Industrial School for Girls at Lancaster; 
the Massachusetts Hospital School at Canton; the State 
Sanatoria at Rutland, North Reading, Lakeville, and Westfield; 
the city and town almshouses; the county training schools; 
the children in the custody of the Lyman and Industrial 
Schools cared for in families; the children supported by cities 
and towns; adults supported in families, other than their 
own, by cities and towns; such charitable corporations report- 
ing to the Board as ask for, or consent to, such visitation and 
inspection; investigation, with public hearing, and report to 
the Secretary of the Commonwealth in all cases of applications 
for the incorporation of charitable organizations; supervision 
of the work of the cities and towns in the relief of mothers with 
dependent children under fourteen years of age; supervision of 
wayfarers' lodges and public lodging houses, as provided in 
chapter 606 of the Acts of 1914. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 5 

The administrative duties are as follows: — 

(a) The discharge of sane inmates of the State Infirmary 
and the State Farm; the execution of laws relative to the re- 
lease on parole of prisoners from the State Farm; the investi- 
gation as to legal settlement of persons, possibly State cases, 
who have been supported, relieved or buried by cities and 
towns, and of sane inmates of State institutions; the directing 
of aid of unsettled persons by cities and towns; the transfer 
of sane paupers from one institution to another; the sending of 
paupers to the places within and without the State where they 
belong; and the administration of the leper hospital at Penikese 
Island. 

(b) The care and maintenance of delinquent, neglected and 
dependent children coming into the custody of the Board 
through court commitment or otherwise; the execution of the 
laws concerning abandoned infants and infant boarding houses; 
and the licensing of lying-in hospitals. 



BY-LAWS OF THE BOARD. 

1. The Board shall at its first regular meeting in June in each 
year elect by ballot a Chairman, a Yice-Chairman, and one 
member of the executive committee, who shall each hold office 
for one year, or until his successor shall have been chosen. Any 
vacancy in the office of Chairman, Yice-Chairman or Executive 
Committeeman, during the year for which he may be elected, 
shall be filled by ballot. In the absence or disability of the 
Chairman or Yice-Chairman, a chairman pro tempore may be 
chosen as the Board may determine. 

2. Regular meetings of the Board shall be held on the first 
and third Fridays of each month, at the State House, at two 
o'clock in the afternoon, or at such other place and hour as the 
Board may from time to time direct. Special meetings may be 
called by the Chairman, or, in his absence, by the Yice-Chair- 
man, at such time and place as may be most convenient for the 
members; and in notifying such meetings the Executive Director 
and Secretary shall specify the subjects to be considered. Four 
members shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of 
business. 

3. The Standing Committees of the Board shall be: (1) a 
Committee on State Adult Poor, to consist of five members; 
(2) a Committee on State Minor Wards, to consist of five 
members; (3) a Committee on Supervision, to consist of five 



6 STATE BOARD OF CHAEITY. [P. D. 17. 

members; (4) a Committee on Legislation and Finance, to con- 
sist of three members: — all to be appointed by the Chairman; 
and (5) an Executive Committee, to be composed of the Chair- 
man, Vice-Chairman and a third member to be elected in ac- 
cordance with the provisions of the first by-law. The Chairman 
shall be, ex officio, an additional member of each of the Standing 
Committees. The duties of the Standing Committees other than 
the Executive Committee shall be supervisory and advisory. 
They may appoint Subcommittees of their own members for 
particular duties falling within their province. It shall be the 
duty of the Executive Committee to act for the Board in the 
intervals between meetings whenever immediate action is 
demanded. Such action shall be reported at the next regular 
meeting of the Board, and if no objection is made, shall be 
regarded as the will of the Board. 

4. There shall be a chief executive officer of the Board to be 
known as the "Executive Director and Secretary," to be ap- 
pointed by the Board. He shall be the chief administrative 
officer of the Board, its clerk, its secretary and auditor and its 
disbursing officer. Subject to its oversight and direction, he 
shall execute all the provisions of the laws touching the Board's 
duties, and shall carry out the policies and regulations established 
by the Board thereunder. In accordance with the provisions of 
the civil service, he shall nominate all employees of the depart- 
ment for appointment by the Board; and, in the absence of any 
rule or regulation of the Board, shall assign their duties. He 
shall study and report to the Board on methods of public aid 
in this country and abroad. He shall make monthly report to 
the Board of his audits and of other matters of concern to his 
office, and shall perform such other duties as may be required of 
him. 

5. There shall be two divisions in the Board, to wit, the 
Division of State Adult Poor and the Division of State Minor 
Wards. 

The Division of State Adult Poor shall discharge all duties 
relating to the checking and verification of bills rendered by cities 
and towns, the verification of settlement of recipients of public 
aid, the admission and discharge of inmates of the State In- 
firmary and the release on parole of inmates of the State Farm, 
the administration of Penikese Hospital and such other ad- 
ministrative duties as the Board may assign. There shall be a 
superintendent of the Division of State Adult Poor, to be known 
as the Director of the said Division, who shall be the executive 
officer thereof, and who shall, subject to the general supervision 
and oversight of the Executive Director and Secretary, execute 
all the functions of the Board relating to his division. He shall 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 7 

make reports to the Executive Director and Secretary monthly 
or oftener, as the Executive Director and Secretary may direct, 
and be responsible to the Executive Director and Secretary for 
the effectiveness of the work of his division. 

The Division of State Minor Wards shall discharge all duties 
relating to the reception, care, treatment, custody, maintenance. 
and discharge of State Minor Wards, and such other administra- 
tive duties as the Board may assign. There shall be a superin- 
tendent of the Division of State Minor Wards, to be known as 
the Director of the said Division, who shall be the executive 
officer thereof, and who shall, subject to the general supervision 
and oversight of the Executive Director and Secretary, execute 
all the functions of the Board relating to his division. He shall 
make reports to the Executive Director and Secretary monthly 
or oftener, as the Executive Director and Secretary may direct, 
and shall be responsible to the Executive Director and Secretary 
for the effectiveness of the work of his division. 

6. These by-laws may be suspended at any meeting duly 
called by a majority vote of the whole Board, and may be 
amended by a vote of two-thirds of the full Board at any 
regular meeting, after previous notice of the change that is 
desired in the same by any member shall have been mailed to 
each member by the Executive Director and Secretary, three 
days, at least, before any vote shall be taken by the Board to 
make the proposed change. 



STAFF ORGANIZATION FOR CARRYING OUT FUNCTIONS. 

The staff service is arranged under the foregoing by-laws in 
a central corps for supervisory and secretarial functions, with 
two main divisions for administrative functions. In this 
manner supervision of State charitable institutions, the visita- 
tion and inspection of city and town almshouses and of public 
lodging houses, and the visitation of county training schools are 
carried out by the Executive Director through the central 
office. The supervision of relief to mothers with dependent 
children, because of the extensive administrative field work 
entailed, is executed through a supervisor and staff of visitors 
located in the Division of State Adult Poor. A staff of super- 
visors of private incorporated charities is directed from the 
central office, and is charged with the field visitation and 
inspection of all incorporated charities, and with the investiga- 
tion of petitions for new incorporations of charities. 



8 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The work of almshouse inspection is materially aided by the 
Board's corps of volunteer almshouse visitors, whose duty is 
the preservation of a human touch and relationship with 
management and inmates of almshouses. The results of this 
phase of the Board's activities will be found in Part III. 
Matters relating to private incorporated charities are con- 
tained in Part II. 

The strictly administrative duties of the Board are lodged 
in the two divisions, one dealing with adults, and known as the 
Division of State Adult Poor; the other exercising the care, 
custody and treatment of minors, and known as the Division 
of State Minor Wards. 

The Division of Adult Poor examines settlements in verifi- 
cation of the claims of cities and towns for reimbursement 
from the State for aid given to sick and indigent persons who 
have no legal settlement. This branch has charge, also, of the 
admission and discharge of inmates of the State infirmary, 
and the parole of prisoners from the State Farm. 

The Division of Minor Wards has charge of the licensing and 
inspection of lying-in hospitals and of boarding houses for 
infants. With these exceptions its duties are confined to the 
reception, custody and care of minors coming to the Board 
voluntarily under the statutes or committed thereto by the 
courts. 

The results of the year's work in both divisions are reported 
in Part I. 

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR LEGISLATION. 

The following are the recommendations of the Board for 
legislative action, all of which have been forwarded to the 
Secretary of the Commonwealth as required by General Acts 
of 1919, chapter 131: — 



Establishment of a Hospital for the Care and Treat- 
ment of Sick State Minor Wards. 
The need of provision for hospital care for sick State minor 
wards long ago reached an acute stage. It is manifest in the 
annual requests of the trustees of the State Infirmary for 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 9 

buildings in which to house State wards, and in the recom- 
mendations of the State Board of Charity for a hospital for 
sick State children. 

The recommendation for such a hospital, to be located at 
some place other than Tewksbury, has been made by the 
Board each year since 1913. The Board has constantly in 
its care hundreds of children, each of whom is for days, weeks 
or perhaps months in need of hospital treatment. Such 
children are for the time being incapable of placement in 
homes. They require treatment in some institution until their 
health is such that they may be sent out into the community. 
With a total of 6,504 children in the Board's care, this margin 
of cases requiring hospital treatment is constant, and may be 
expected to increase each year in exact proportion to the 
normal increase in the total number of wards. 

The Board has no hospital in which to treat these children. 
Some, falling sick in their foster homes, are cared for by 
private hospitals at State expense. Most are sent to the State 
Infirmary, the only public institution to which the Board can 
send them. Here they are out of place and greatly hamper 
the infirmary in its more legitimate activities. Thus located, 
they are an ever-increasing danger to themselves. At the same 
time they lose the benefit of special care and treatment so 
frequently demanded by the miserable condition in which 
they are found by the authorities, and in which they remain 
at the time of commitment to the Board's custody. 

LAWS AFFECTING THE BOARD, PASSED BY THE LEGISLA- 
TURE OF 1919. 

Two changes in the law are to be noted since the last report : 
one of these an extension of the functions of the State Infir- 
mary to the care of chronic cases regardless of settlement; and 
the other the restoration of a flat rate of reimbursement to 
cities and towns for the tuition of State minor wards. A third 
statute, requiring the licensing of day nurseries by local boards 
of health, affects many charitable corporations already by law 
placed under the supervision of the State Board of Charity. 
This latter act is not quoted, but may be found in chapter 195 
of the General Acts of 1919. 



10 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

General Acts of 1919. 

Chapter 291. 

An Act relative to the attendance of a child at school 
in some city or town other than that in which the 
parent or guardian resides. 

Section four of chapter forty -four of the Revised Laws, as 
amended by chapter three hundred and seventy-five of the acts 
of nineteen hundred and five, by section two of chapter two 
hundred and sixty-eight of the acts of nineteen hundred and 
eleven, by section four of chapter seven hundred and seventy- 
nine of the acts of nineteen hundred and thirteen, and by chap- 
ter seventy-eight of the acts of nineteen hundred and fifteen, is 
hereby further amended by striking out the said section and 
substituting the following: — Section 4- («) It shall be the 
duty of the school committee of each city or town to provide 
for the attendance of all children of compulsory school age 
actually residing therein, and to enforce the same under the 
provisions of section one of this chapter; but if such a child 
resides temporarily in a city or town other than that of the 
legal residence of his parent or guardian for the special purpose 
of attending school there in preference to the place of such legal 
residence, the said city or town may, for the tuition of such 
child during the period of such attendance, recover from the 
parent or guardian, whether he resides within or without the 
commonwealth, a sum computed at the regular rate of tuition 
established by the school committee for non-resident pupils, 
but in no case exceeding the average expense per pupil of such 
school for that period unless, under the provisions of chapter 
one hundred and ninety-eight of the acts of nineteen hundred 
and eighteen, or of section five of this chapter, such tuition is 
recoverable from the city or town in which the parent or guard- 
ian resides. 

(6) For the tuition in the public schools in any city or town 
of any child over five years of age who shall be placed elsewhere 
than in his own home by the state board of charity or by the 
trustees of the Massachusetts training schools, or kept under 
the control of either of said boards in such city or town, the 
commonwealth shall pay to the city or town, and for such tuition 
of any such child so placed by the trustees for children of the 
city of Boston, or so kept under control of said trustees, the 
city of Boston, from its appropriation for school purposes, shall 
pay to said city or town, seventy-five cents for each week of 
five days, or major part thereof, of attendance of the child in the 
public elementary schools; and for every such child attending 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 11 

a public junior or senior high school the commonwealth or the 
city of Boston, as the case may be, shall pay tuition at the 
regular rate established by the school committee for non-resident 
pupils and filed by the school committee, as may be required 
by the board of education for the approval of high schools for 
tuition purposes. 

(c) For the transportation to and from a public elementary 
or grammar school of any child whose tuition is payable by the 
commonwealth or by the city of Boston under the provisions 
of this section, the commonwealth or the city of Boston, as the 
case may be, shall pay to the city or town furnishing such 
transportation, for each week of five days or major part thereof, 
an amount equal to the average amount for each child paid by 
the city or town per week for the transportation of children to 
and from school over the route by which such child is conveyed. 

(d) A child placed by the state board of charity or trustees 
of the Massachusetts training schools, or trustees for children 
of the city of Boston in a town which does not maintain a public 
high school offering four years of instruction, may attend the 
high school of another city or town under the same conditions 
that apply to a child whose parent or guardian resides in such 
town, except that the tuition of such child shall be paid as 
provided in paragraph (b) of this section, and that the common- 
wealth or the city of Boston, as the case may be, may reimburse 
the town in which the child is placed for the whole cost of his 
transportation. 

(e) Settlements of the accounts of the several cities and towns 
with the commonwealth and with the city of Boston shall be 
made annually on the first day of April, and the amounts found 
due shall be paid within three months thereafter. 

(/) For the tuition in the public schools in any town of less 
than ten thousand inhabitants of any child between the ages of 
five and fifteen years not theretofore resident in such town, 
who is an inmate of an institution containing more than six 
inmates, the town may recover from the institution the addi- 
tional school expense incurred, as may be determined jointly by 
the school committee of the town and the trustees or managers 
of the institution, or, in case of disagreement between said school 
committee and said trustees or managers, as may be decreed by 
the probate court; but no demand shall be made upon said 
trustees or managers without a vote of the town instructing 
the school committee accordingly. 

(g) A child placed by the State board of charity, or trustees 
of the Massachusetts training schools, in a city or town in 
Massachusetts which does not maintain an approved independ- 
ent, agricultural or household arts school, offering the type of 



12 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

training which he desires, may attend such a school maintained 
by another city or town under the same conditions as to admis- 
sion and the payment of tuition fees that apply to a resident of 
a city or town not maintaining such a school, as provided in 
chapter four hundred and seventy-one of the acts of nineteen 
hundred and eleven and the amendments, thereof, except that 
the commonwealth shall reimburse in full all sums paid by any 
city or town for the tuition of such child. [Approved July 7, 
1919. 

Chapter 304. 

An Act to provide for the admission to certain state insti- 
tutions OF PERSONS AFFECTED WITH INCURABLE DISEASES. 
Section 1. Any person who has been a resident of the com- 
monwealth for a period of not less than two years, and who is 
affected with any incurable disease except mental defect or 
leprosy, may be admitted to such state institution or infirmary 
under the supervision of the state board of charity as may be 
designated by the board for that purpose: provided, that his 
admission shall be only upon the certificate of the board of 
health of the city or town from which he is sent. The state 
board of charity is hereby empowered to make rules and regu- 
lations for such admission and to facilitate the operation of this 
act. 

Section 2. The expense of the maintenance of such a patient 
shall be paid by him or by any person or kindred bound by law 
to maintain him. In case he and his kindred are unable to pay 
for his maintenance, the city or town in which the patient is 
found to have a legal settlement shall be liable to the common- 
wealth for his support, or, if the patient is without settlement 
in this commonwealth, the expense of his maintenance shall be 
paid by the commonwealth. [Approved July 12, 1919. 

THE STATE INSTITUTIONS. 

The State institutions under the supervision of the Board 
are: the State Infirmary at Tewksbury; the State Farm at 
Bridgewater; the Norfolk State Hospital; the Lyman School 
for Boys at Westborough; the Industrial School for Boys at 
Shirley; the State Industrial School for Girls at Lancaster; 
the Massachusetts Hospital School at Canton; the North 
Reading State Sanatorium; the Rutland State Sanatorium; 
the Lakeville State Sanatorium; and the Westfield State 
Sanatorium. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 13 

The supervisory powers of the Board over these institutions 
extend to the right of investigation and recommendation as to 
any matters relating to the institutions, but the administration 
of each is vested in separate Boards of Trustees. 

The State Infirmary and the State Farm are controlled by 
one board of trustees. Its membership is as follows: Leonard 
Huntress, M.D., Lowell, Chairman; Mrs. Mary E. Cogan, 
Stoneham; Galen L. Stone, Brookline; Xellie E. Talbot, 
Brookline, Secretary; Francis W. Anthony, M.D., Haverhill; 
Dennis D. Sullivan, Middleborough; Walter F. Dearborn, 
Cambridge. 

The Norfolk State Hospital for the care and treatment of 
inebriates is administered by the following Board of Trustees: 
James J. Tillinghast, Milton, Chairman; Albert E. Bradley, 
Boston; Philip R. Allen, Walpole; Frank L. Locke, Maiden, 
Secretary; Edwin Mulready, Rockland; Otto L. Schofield, 
M.D., Wellesley; Lombard Williams, Dedham. 

The Trustees of Massachusetts Hospitals for Consumptives 
administer the four sanatoria, but have no powers over the 
tuberculosis wards of the State Infirmary. The Board is 
constituted as follows: Arthur K. Stone, M.D., Boston, Chair- 
ma?!; William C. Godfrey, Springfield; Charles J. Downey, 
M.D., Springfield; Sylvia B. Knowlton, Newton; Daniel L. 
Prendergast, Brookline; Simon Swig, Taunton; George A. 
Dunn, Gardner; John B. Hawes, 2d, M.D., Secretary, State 
House, Boston. 

The three training or industrial schools fall under the control 
of Trustees of Massachusetts Training Schools. The Board 
is as follows: Carl Dreyfus, Boston, Chairman; James J. 
Sheehan, Peabody; Mary Josephine Bleakie, Brookline; 
Matthew Luce, Cohasset; David R. Collier, Gardner; Amy 
Ethel Taylor, Lexington; Charles M. Davenport, Boston; 
James W. McDonald, Marlborough; James D. Henderson, 
Newton; Robert J. Watson, Executive Secretary, State House, 
Boston. 

The Massachusetts Hospital School is administered by the 
following Board of Trustees: Edward H. Bradford, M.D., 
Boston, Chairman; Leonard W. Ross, Mattapan, Secretary; 



14 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Walter C. Baylies, Taunton; William F. Fitzgerald, Brookline; 
Alfred S. Pinkerton, Worcester. 

In addition to the eleven State institutions which the Board 
supervises is Penikese Hospital, the Massachusetts hospital 
for the care and treatment of persons afflicted with leprosy. 
This institution is administered directly by the State Board 
of Charity. For the sake of uniformity and comparison all 
twelve institutions are grouped together in this report. 

The Norfolk State Hospital, as last year, is still in use by 
the Federal government under the lease of October 1, 1918. 
The State Farm was transferred from this Board to the Bureau 
of Prisons August 27, 1919 (see chapter 199, General Acts of 
1919). 

Numbers. 
The total number of cases under care in these State charitable 
institutions during the year was 14,436, a number less by 1,915 
than the corresponding total of 1918. Of the total number, 
10,416 were males and 4,020 were females. Eight thousand six 
hundred three were under care for hospital treatment; 2,939 
were juvenile delinquents; 1,823 were adult offenders, mostly 
chronic drunkards; and 1,071 were indigent persons, having no 
legal settlement and not included in the above classifications. 
Of the hospital cases, 3,259 were suffering from pulmonary 
tuberculosis; 1,669 were insane, including 902 at the State 
Farm who were criminally insane. For movement of popula- 
tion, see Table II. 

Capacity. 
The depletion of institution population through the abnormal 
demands for laborers is still a marked feature of institution 
census this year. In 1918 the average daily population of the 
State Infirmary, where partially or totally disabled dependents 
are cared for, fell 247 below normal. In 1919 it dropped 159. 
The State Farm, a custodial farm colony for drunkards and 
vagrants, fell off 1,370 in 1918, and in 1919 lost 1,614. These 
two institutions are those of the charitable institutions that 
would naturally profit by more favorable industrial conditions 
outside. The unsteady worker, or the person who is partially 
incapacitated, fails of self-support to a less degree in such

15 



abnormal times. The hospitals held an even course, while the 
training schools for juveniles and delinquents are much over- 
crowded. Lyman School, with a normal capacity of 450 beds, 
has housed a daily average population of 463 boys throughout 
the year. The average daily census at the Industrial School 
for Boys exceeded the normal by 30, and the Industrial School 
for Girls overran its normal by OS. Nor do these figures reveal 
the full extent of the pressure of these schools to house the 
greatly increased number of juvenile delinquents. Lyman 
School at one time during the year had 536 boys in residence. 
The largest daily census at the Industrial School for Boys was 
294. At the Industrial School for Girls it was 389. At Shirley 
the smallest number present at any one time in the year was 
still the S above the normal capacity, while at Lancaster it 
never fell below an excess of 48. 

The accompanying table shows the fluctuations of average 
daily attendance above and below normal capacity for each 
institution, together with the largest and smallest daily totals 
set out for comparison.

Cost of Maintenance. 
The combined appropriations for the maintenance of the 
State charitable institutions in 1919 were $2,516,196. 58. 1 The 
total expenditures on the same account were $2,438,077.12. 
Of the sum expended, $838,877.96 was for salaries, wages and 
labor; all other expenses, $1,599,199.16. For the coming year 
the respective Boards of Trustees submit estimates for main- 
tenance appropriations, as shown in Table I. To the tabula- 
tion is added for better comparison the Board's own estimate 
for Penikese Hospital. Estimates for special purposes will be 
considered later in this report under each of the institutions 
separately. 

Comparative View of Movement of Population and of 

Expenditures. 
The movement of population in the eleven institutions is 
shown in brief but comparative form in Table II. Inmates are 
classified by sex, while the daily average attendance appears 
in a column adjoining the average number of officers and 
employees. The average number of persons employed, shown 
in this table, is obtained from an exact analysis of the pay rolls, 
reducing all employment to a basis of days. Table III affords 
comparative view of expenditures at all the institutions, classi- 
fied as "current" and "extraordinary." Tables II and III are 
drawn in accordance with the statistical form adopted by the 
National Conference of Social Work, May 15, 1906. 2 

1 Includes transfers from 1918 balances. 

2 The Norfolk State Hospital is omitted from these tables. See text, p. 26.

living births, namely, 81 males and 57 females. Among the 
mothers of these children 76 were born in the United States, 14 
in Ireland, 18 in British Provinces, 30 in other countries and 1

and baby cases at this institution, see page 100. 

In the insane department of this institution there was a 
daily average during the year of 701 persons, 194 males and 
506 females. With an appropriation of $705,326.43, a total of 
$702,492.32 was expended for the maintenance of this institu- 
tion. Of the amount expended, $216,506.07 was for salaries, 
wages and labor; all other expenses, $485,986.25. Weekly per 
capita cost of maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and 
refunds from maintenance, $6,096. Total receipts from all 
sources other than the State treasury, $53,289.67. Net cost 
of maintenance to the Commonwealth, $649,202.65. Ratio of 
daily average number of persons employed to daily average 
number of inmates, 1 to 6.4. For detailed analysis of receipts

Classification of discharges: 98 deaths; 1,677 removals. 

This institution was transferred to the Bureau of Prisons 
August 27, 1919. The data following are for the fiscal year 
ending November 30, 1919. 

Provides custodial care for persons of both sexes committed 
by the courts for drunkenness or vagrancy; almshouse care for 
indigent persons not chargeable to any city or town; and 
hospital care for insane male convicts. Persons committed for 
drunkenness are in almost all cases chronic drunkards. 

During the year 3,201 cases have been cared for, — 1,154 
less than last year, and 3,962 less than in 1917. Largest daily 
census, 1,768; smallest, 1,426; daily average, 1,599. Of the 
whole number under care, 1,823 were prisoners, 426 were 
paupers and 902 were insane convicts. The total number of 
admissions and commitments was 1,538, of which 1,273 were 
commitments; 910 of these commitments, or 71.4 per cent, 
were for drunkenness. Of these 1,823 persons committed, 265, 
or 14.5 per cent, were returned for violation of parole; 849, or 
46.5 per cent, of all these new commitments had served time 
at the State Farm before. Of all commitments, 215 were made 
from Boston. A comparative classification of all commitments, 
showing data for nine years, follows : —

The total number of cases leaving the institution during the 
year, whether by death, discharge or release on parole, was 
1,775. The deaths numbered 98. 

There has been a marked decrease in the figures for 1918 and 
1919 as compared with previous years. The total number of 
persons under care during the year in this institution is 1,154 
less than in 1918, and 3,962 less than in 1917. The number of 
commitments for drunkenness decreased 445 this year and 2,033 
in 1918. The whole prison department shows a decrease for 
the year of 148, and the number of dependents admitted to the 
almshouse department has decreased 93. 

Commitments for vagrancy and tramping have dropped 
from 271 in 1917 to 196 in 1918, and 177 last year, a decline 
of 62.1 per cent since the industrial speeding of the war began 
to be felt. 

The parole visitors of prisoners released from the State Farm 
in 1919 are: Albert Arnold, Boston; Cornelius Buckley, Natick; 
Rev. Eugene Carney, Roxbury; Peter Carr, Lawrence; Rev. 
Clark Carter, Lawrence; Chester L. Clark, Milford; Edward

Out of an appropriation of $439,250, a total of $394,745.53 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $116,376.47 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $278,369.06. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from

Norfolk State Hospital. 
Irwin H. Neff, M.D., Superintendent. 

This institution has been under the administrative control 
of the Federal government since October, 1918. During the 
year a new lease was entered into by the terms of which 
Federal control will probably continue for a considerable time. 
By the consolidation act the institution, when it returns to 
State control, will fall within the Department of Mental 
Diseases instead of the Department of Public Welfare. 

The out-patient department has been carried on as usual, 
and institutional care provided for a smaller number by the 
use of the Washingtonian Home for the men, and the New 
England Home for Intemperate Women for the females. 

Under this arrangement a total of $39,424.60 was expended, 
one-half of it for the board of patients. 

THE STATE TRAINING SCHOOLS. 

The Lyman School for Boys at Westborough, the Industrial 
School for Boys at Shirley, and the Industrial School for Girls 
at Lancaster are the three industrial schools provided by the 
State for juvenile delinquents. They are administered by a 
single Board of Trustees known as the Trustees of the Massa- 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 27 

chusetts Training Schools, with offices at the State House, 
Boston. 

There are also two parole departments for the three schools 
with offices in the State House. The boys from both Lyman 
School and the Industrial School for Boys are cared for by one 
department. The Girls Parole Department has a staff of nine 
visitors and four clerks, and last year expended 824,755.51 on 
this work. At the end of the year there were 396 girls on 
parole. 

The Boys Parole Department has a staff of ten visitors and 
three clerks, and last year expended 858,135.71. At the end 
of the year there were 2,893 boys on parole from the two 
schools. 

Boys under fifteen years of age may be committed to the 
Lyman School, and under eighteen years of age to the school 
at Shirley. Most of the boys who are guilty of truancy only 
are sent to the county training school. Girls under seventeen 
go to the institution at Lancaster. All persons committed 
remain under the control of the trustees during minority. For 
greater efficiency in administration, the Lyman School cares 
for boys under fifteen, while those over that age go to Shirley. 

The total number of persons under care in these three 
institutions during the year was 2,939. Of these, 1,599 were 
boys under fifteen, all at Lyman School, 748 were boys fifteen 
and over, at Shirley, and 592 were girls under seventeen, cared 
for at Lancaster. 

In the three schools there were, at the beginning of the year, 
1,144 inmates, namely, 789 boys and 355 girls. One thousand 
seven hundred ninety-five were received during the year, and 
1,902 went out either by discharge or upon parole, viz., 1,667 
boys and 235 girls, leaving 1,037 on November 30, 1919. 

The combined appropriations for the maintenance of the 
three schools totaled 8469,750. On this account, 8455,215.31 
was expended. Subtracting all receipts from sources other 
than the State treasury, the net cost of maintenance to the 
Commonwealth was 8453,290.29. Details of administration and 
cost are considered under each school separately, as follows : — 



28 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Lyman School for Boys, Westborough. 
Charles A. Keeler, Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $591,702.02. 
Normal capacity, 450. Value per unit of capacity, 81,314.89. 

Provides custodial care and industrial training for delinquent 
boys under fifteen years of age. Cottage plan. 

During the year 1,599 cases have been under care, repre- 
senting 854 separate individuals. This total number of cases 
is 104 more than in 1918, and 267 more than in 1917. The 
number in the school at the beginning of the year was 533; 
admissions numbered 1,066, discharges, 1,169; remainder at 
the close of the year, 430. The daily average number of 
inmates was 463.79, — 37 less than in 1918. At one time 
during the year there were 536 boys in residence. 

The list of causes of admission in the 1,066 cases received 
during the year was as follows: assault, 4; breaking and enter- 
ing, 90; delinquent child, 40; drunkenness, 2; larceny, 115; 
returned or transferred from other institutions, not penal, 12; 
returned from funerals, 8; returned from visits to sick relatives, 
3; returned on account of illness, 10; returned from place of 
parole or board, 461; running away, 8; receiving stolen prop- 
erty, 1; transferred from the State Board of Charity, 25 
setting fires, 1; returned from home after graduation, 1 
recommitment, 1; released by police, 1; stubbornness, 44 
vagrancy, 1 ; turning false alarm of fire, 1 ; runaways captured, 
229. 

Three hundred thirty-two of the foregoing cases were com- 
mitted by the courts. Of this number, 264 had been arrested 
before, and 52 had been inmates of other institutions. Thirty- 
five, or 10.5 per cent, were of American parentage; 186, or 56 
per cent, were of foreign parentage; and 19 were unknown. 
Thirty-three of the boys were foreign born, while 270 were 
born in the United States. 

The great decrease in commitments during the year brought 
a much-needed relief from overcrowding. At the end of 1919 
the population was down almost to the normal capacity of the 
school. This decline reduces the great risk which it has been 
impossible to avoid with such crowded conditions in the past, 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 29 

and enables those in charge to give the boys better training 
and discipline. As a consequence, it is reasonable to expect 
an increase in the percentage of boys who make good on parole. 

Of the new commitments this year, 72 boys were eleven 
years of age or under. These young boys are taken care of in 
two cottages, one 7 and the other 3 miles from the main school. 
They do not mingle with the older boys. 

Even with the number of inmates at its normal capacity, 
Lyman School is as large a unit as it ought to be. The head 
of such a large school almost necessarily has to give most of his 
time to the details of business administration, and consequently 
cannot be the "boy man" which the most effective superin- 
tendent of such a school must be. It is questionable whether 
the boys who do not make good on parole should be returned 
to the main school to fill up the disciplinary cottage, the pur- 
pose of which is to take care of the regular cases for discipline 
in the school. The efficiency of all the work would be bettered 
if these boys could be separated from the others as the small 
boys are. 

This year the average period of stay of boys paroled for first 
time at Lyman School was reduced from fourteen months, 
which it had been in former years, to 10.75 months. 

Last year, of 1,001 cases received into the school, 361 were 
returned from place or parole. This year, out of 1,066 cases 
received, 461 were returned from place or parole. The 37 per 
cent of 1918 became 43 per cent in 1919. 

Of the 1,169 cases discharged or released during the year, 
475 were released on parole to parents and relatives; on parole 
to others than relatives, 215; on parole to make their own way, 
3; boarded out, 163; runaways, 255; sent to hospitals, 12; 
turned over to police, 2; transferred to other institutions, 20; 
entered United States Army and Navy, 10; released to funerals, 
8; released to visit sick relatives, 3; released home for gradua- 
tion, 1; released to Worcester District Attorney, 1; died, 1. 

With an appropriation of $204,000, a total of $195,173.25 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $67,260.69 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $127,912.56. Weekly per capita cost of

to 4.9. The trustees estimate that $225,493.20 will be neces- 
sary for maintenance in 1920. (See table, pages 16-18.) For 
detailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pages 53-80. 

The total expended out of the appropriations for special 
purposes was $4,857.87. 

There is great need for a large building at the school to be 
used for laundry, kitchen and storage. 

For the coming year the trustees submit the following esti- 
mate, with request for a special appropriation covering the 
same: — 

1. For the construction, heating and electric wiring of a 

storehouse, kitchen and laundry building . . . $111,374 20 



Industrial School for Boys, Shirley. 
George P. Campbell, Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $457,359. 
Normal capacity of plant, 240. Value per unit of capacity, 
$1,905.66. 

Provides custodial care and industrial training for boys over 
fifteen and under twenty-one years of age. Only boys under 
eighteen may be admitted. 

During the year 748 cases have been cared for representing 
726 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 99 
more than in the preceding year. The number in the school at 
the beginning of the year w T as 256. Admissions numbered 492; 
discharges, 498; remainder at the close of the year, 250. The 
largest daily census w T as 294; the smallest, 248; daily average, 
270.69. 

The list of causes of admission in the 492 cases received 
during the year was as follows: assault, 6; assault and battery, 
6; assault and robbery, 1; arson, setting fire to railroad car, 
building fires, 4; attempting to break and enter, 6; attempted 
larceny, larceny from persons, receiving stolen property, 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 31 

robbery, 5; breaking and entering, 31; breaking and entering 
and larceny, 89; delinquent child, 9; drunkenness, 4; forgery, 
3; idle and disorderly, 4; larceny, 97; stubbornness, 58; 
taking automobile, 20; taking team, 5; unnatural act, 3; 
vagrancy, S; miscellaneous, 15; returned from parole, 102; 
returned from leave of absence, 10; returned from hospital, 6. 

Three hundred seventy of the foregoing cases were committed 
by the courts, and 4 were transferred from Lyman School. Of 
the boys thus committed 2S2 had been arrested before, and 52 
had been inmates of other institutions. Forty-seven, or 12.5 
per cent, were foreign born; 322, or 86 per cent, were born in 
the Lnited States. One hundred one were of American parent- 
age, 192 of foreign parentage and 11 were of unknown parentage. 
The average length of stay of boys in the school was eight and 
one-third months. The average population of 270.69 exceeds 
the average of the preceding year by 18.39. 

Most of these boys are well developed physically, and need 
much work to take care of their surplus energy. The offences 
for which many of them are committed are very serious, and 
require a strenuous effort to keep the boys from developing 
into criminals. The boys do a great part of the work about the 
large farm, and during the past year succeeded in supplying 
68 per cent of all the food used in the school. 

In marked contrast with the decrease in new commitments 
at Lyman School, Shirley shows such a marked increase that 
it has this year the largest number of new boys in its history. 
This great increment has filled the plant to capacity, and has 
brought about premature parolling in order to make room for 
the newcomers. This condition has been aggravated, also, by 
the temporary loss of one of the cottages, which was so badly 
damaged during the summer by lightning and an ensuing fire 
that it has had to be vacated for repairs, and was still un- 
occupied at the close of the year. 

Of the 498 boys discharged or released during the year 354 
were paroled; returned paroles placed out, 88; granted leave of 
absence, 10; transferred to Lyman School for Boys, 8; trans- 
ferred to Massachusetts Reformatory, 6; transferred to other 
institutions, not penal, 9; returned to court, over or under age, 
4; absent without leave, 19.

A new cottage for thirty boys is almost completed and will 
relieve overcrowding to a great extent. 

There is pressing need for a new infirmary building to take 
the place of the old Shaker building which must answer all such 
purposes at present. 

For the coming year the trustees submit the following esti- 
mate, with request for a special appropriation covering the 
same: — 

1. For the construction, heating, plumbing, lighting and 

furnishing of an infirmary building $60,848 00 

Industrial School for Girls, Lancaster. 
Amy F. Everall, Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, S463, 748.80. 
Normal capacity of plant, 299. Value per unit of capacity, 
$1,551. Founded in 1854 as a private institution. Taken over 
by the State in 1856. 

Provides custodial care and industrial training for delinquent 
girls under seventeen years of age at time of commitment. 

During the year 592 girls have been under care. This total 
is 39 more than in 1918, and 28 more than in 1917. The 
number in the school at the beginning of the year was 355; 
admissions during the year, 237; discharged, including all 
persons going out of the school, 235; remaining November 30, 
1919, 357. 



'Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 33 

The largest daily census was 389, smallest, 347, daily average, 
367.33. 

The list of causes of admission for 180 commitments of the 
237 cases received at the school during the year was as fol- 
lows: being a lewd person, 2; cohabitation, 1; delinquent, 10; 
delinquent child, 14; delinquency, 1; fornication, 10; idle and 
disorderly, 2; idle and disorderly person, 3; idle, vagrant and

on account of illness, 5; from hospital, 9; from witnessing at 
court, 5; from temporary place, 1; for further training, 2; 
for larceny, 2; for running away from the school, 1; for being 
immoral while a runaway, 13; for immoral conduct, 8; because 
in danger of immoral conduct, 4. 

Of the 235 girls discharged or released during the year 
29 were released on parole to parents or relatives; on parole 
to other families for wages, 137; on parole to other families to 
attend school, earning wages, 3; on parole to other families to 
attend school, earning board, 6; on parole to parents to attend 
school, 4; placed at board, 1; from a visit at the school, 7; 
for a visit, 1; ran away from Industrial School, 3; transferred 
to hospital, 22; to witness at court, 5; transferred to schools 
for the feeble-minded, 11; to temporary place, 1; on becoming 
of age, 3; discharged as unfit subject, 1; discharged (over age 
when committed), 1. 

The average length of stay in the school of the girls who 
were paroled for the first time in 1919 was slightly over two 
years. The longer period of training as compared with that 
in the boys' schools enables the superintendent to know the 
inmates better; gives an opportunity for more efficient train- 
ing; and increases the pupil's chances of making good on parole. 



34 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Many of the girls are not normal mentally, and for that 
reason are not proper subjects for this school. It is a very 
difficult thing to transfer these girls elsewhere; nevertheless, 
during the year ten were committed to the State school for the 
feeble-minded at Wrentham. 

The more backward girls live for the most part in a separate 
cottage a few miles from the main school, and are given train- 
ing best suited to their particular needs. This separation 
within the institution must continue, pending the time when 
proper classification can be effected before commitment. 

The vegetable cellar is now completed, and will enable the 
school to prevent waste by proper storage of such foodstuffs. 

The farmhouse has been remodeled, and will offer much 
better quarters for the farmhands, whom it is very hard to 
retain under the best of conditions. 

With an appropriation of 8135,350, a total of 8133,3-49.49 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, 847,527.12 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, 885,822.37. Weekly per capita cost of main- 
tenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, 86.940. Total receipts from all sources other

There were 340 cases under care during the year. This total 
is 7 less than in 1918, and 17 less than in 1917. 

On December 1, 1918, there were 259 children, namely, 147 
boys, and 112 girls, in the school. Eighty-one were admitted 
and 60 discharged during the year. The maximum number 
at any one time was 2S1. the minimum, 192, and the daily

THE STATE TUBERCULOSIS SANATORIA. 

The Board's supervision of tuberculosis hospitals covers 
the Rutland, Lakeville, North Reading and Westfield State 
sanatoria, and the tuberculosis wards at the State Infirmary. 
The four separate institutions are administered by one Board, 
the Trustees of Hospitals for Consumptives. 

During the year these four institutions treated 2.646 cases, 
with a combined normal capacity of about 1,043 patients, and 
a daily average population of 1,030.49. 

Of the total number cared for 987 were in residence at the 
beginning of the year. The 1,659 admissions during the year 
were offset by the 1,600 discharges., leaving 1.046 on November 
30, 1919. 

Of the 1,659 cases admitted, 237 were classed as incipient; 
7S4 as moderately advanced; 619 as advanced; 4 as non- 
tubercular; 13 as not classified; and 2 as undetermined. Nine 
hundred forty-three were males: 716, females. 



36 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The discharges were classified as follows: disease arrested, 27; 
apparently arrested, 163; condition improved, 513; condition 
not improved, 226; quiescent, 207; non-tubercular, 4; died, 
257; unclassified because of shortness of stay, 203. Thus 693, 
or 49.6 per cent, of all the discharged cases that were classified 
were sent away either with the disease apparently arrested or 
with condition improved. The corresponding percentage for 
last year was 48. 

Rutland State Sanatorium, Rutland.

of capacity, $1,901.23. 

Provides hospital care and treatment for persons afflicted 
with pulmonary tuberculosis. 

During the year 858 patients have been under care. This 
total is 57 more than in 1918. Of the whole number, 291 were 
in residence at the beginning of the year. The remaining 567 
were admitted under the following classification, based upon 
the ascertained progress of the disease: incipient, 132, or 
23.28 per cent; moderately advanced, 271, or 47.79 per cent; 
far advanced, 160, or 28.21 per cent; not classified, 4, or 
.35 per cent. Of the new cases males numbered 306; females, 
261. Number of patients at the close of the year, 359. 

The discharges numbered 499, namely, 278 males and 221 
females, classified according to conditions, as follows: disease 
arrested, 23, apparently arrested, 24; improved, 146; not 
improved, 72; died, 24; quiescent, 150; unclassified, 59; 
non-tubercular, 1. 

The average daily census was 340.23. The largest daily 
census was 367; the smallest, 290. The decrease in the census 
took place during the first month of this year following the 
epidemic of influenza. The average for 1918 was 347.8. 

The average duration of stay in the sanatorium of patients 
discharged during the year was 259.95 days. Average number 
of bed cases, 100. 

Of the total number of cases cared for during the year, 65 
have been supported from private funds; 285 from cities and

tailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pages 53-80. 

The new kitchen, stock room and cold-storage plant were 
completed during the year, and the cafeteria service for em- 
ployees and patients was introduced. 

The water tower to take care of the water from the cold- 
storage plant has just been completed. 

The new X-ray machine has been set up. The electric 
current for the X-ray machine is obtained from the Gardner 
Electric Light Company, which has installed the wires to the 
institution. 

The old bakery was moved into what was the original 
kitchen, now remodeled. Linoleum has been laid throughout 
most of the main corridors. Plastering has been repaired or 
replaced in many instances, rather than patched. The old 
farmhouse has been plastered and painted during the past year. 
A new tar and gravel roof has been put on Centre, also exten- 
sive repairing and painting done to other roofs. Electric light 
wires to the farm buildings have been relocated. Extensive 
steam fitting and repairs have been made to the power plant, 
and one of the generators in the engine room has had extensive 
repairs and overhauling. Xew floors have been laid in the 
cow barn, and new stanchions installed; the entire building 
has been whitewashed or painted inside. New woodworking

Value per unit of capacity, $1,221.24. 

Provides hospital care and treatment for persons afflicted 
with pulmonary tuberculosis. 

During the year 548 patients have been under care. Of this 
number, 194 were in residence at the beginning of the year. 
The remaining 354 were admitted under the following classi- 
fication, based upon the ascertained progress of the disease: 
incipient, 13, or 3.6 per cent; moderately advanced, 189, or 
53.3 per cent; advanced, 146, or 41.2 per cent; non-tuberculous, 
4; not determined, 2. Sex of patients admitted: males, 208; 
females, 146. There has been a daily average of 68 bed pa- 
tients, — approximately 38 per cent of the daily population. 

The discharges numbered 356, namely, 205 males and 151 
females, classified according to condition, as follows: disease 
arrested, 4, or 1.1 per cent; apparently arrested, 5, or 1.4 per 
cent; improved, 142, or 40 per cent; quiescent, 22, or 6.1 per 
cent; unimproved, 59, or 16.5 per cent; non-tubercular, 3; 
died, 61, or 17.1 per cent; unclassified because of shortness of 
stay, 60, or 16.8 per cent. Of the patients discharged the 
average duration of residence in the sanatorium was two 
hundred fifteen days, as opposed to two hundred forty-nine

days for the preceding year. Number of patients at the end 
of the year, 192. 

The largest daily census was 196; the smallest, 132; average, 
178.36. The average for 1918 was 198.39, and for 1917, 199.47. 

Fifty cases have been supported from private funds; 157 
cases by cities and towns ; 83 cases entirely by the State ; and 
11 private cases have later become either town or State charges. 

Out of an appropriation of $139,200, a total of 8137,165.36 
w T as expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, 849,539.66 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, 887,025.70. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $14,647. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $28,686.82. Net cost of maintenance 
to the Commonwealth, 8108,478.54. Ratio of daily average 
number of persons employed to daily average number of in- 
mates, 1 to 2.4. For detailed analysis of receipts and expendi- 
tures, see pages 53-80. The trustees estimate the sum of 
$161,638.02 for maintenance in 1920. (See table, pages 16-18.) 

The prison camp has been maintained with great difficulty 
during the year, and the assistance this department has 
rendered during the labor shortage, which has been more acute 
than during the year 1918, cannot be overestimated. The men 
have worked in nearly every department of the institution, and 
without their assistance the superintendent believes he would 
have been compelled, temporarily at least, to close up a portion 
of the institution. 

A 100-foot brick chimney, with incinerator at its base, was 
built during the year at a cost of 85,000. A new piggery to ac- 
commodate brood sows has been built, and improvements made 
about the old piggery. The work on the nurses' new dormi- 
tory and chapel has been started, and the building will probably 
be ready for occupancy about April, 1920. Extensive repairs 
have been made in the boiler and engine room, additional 
steam pipe covered, and a new Venturi meter, draft gauge, and 
indicator installed. 

The trustees submit the following estimate for the coming 
year, with a request for special appropriations covering the 
same : —

personal, $333,961.64. Normal capacity of plant, 266. Value 
per unit of capacity, 81,255.49. 

Provides hospital care and treatment for persons afHicted 
with pulmonary tuberculosis. During the year 704 cases have 
been under care. This total number of cases is 28 more than 
in 1918, and 19 more than in 1917. Of the whole number, 
245 were in residence at the beginning of the year. The 
remaining 459 cases were admitted under the following classi- 
fication, based upon the ascertained progress of the disease: 
incipient, 5, or 1 per cent; moderately advanced, 240, or 52 
per cent; advanced, 205, or 44.6 per cent; not considered, 9. 
Males numbered 290; females, 169. 

The discharged cases numbered 472, namely, 302 males and 
170 females, classified according to condition, as follows: 
disease improved, 190, or 40 per cent; quiescent, 15, or 3 per 
cent; not improved, 69, or 14.6 per cent; died, 123, or 26 per 
cent; apparently arrested, 13, or 2.7 per cent; not considered, 
62, or 13 per cent. Two hundred thirty-two remained on 
November 30. 

Daily average number of patients was 251. The largest 
daily number was 271; the smallest, 222. The average for 
1918 was 260.35. Average duration of stay of the 472 dis- 
charged patients was one hundred ninety days. The corre- 
sponding average for 1918 was two hundred twenty-five days. 
Average number of bed patients, 109. 

Of the total number of cases cared for during the year 37 
were supported from private funds; 238 were supported from 
municipalities; 120 were supported by the Commonwealth; 
39 were cases whose settlements were undetermined; 20 were

supported by war risk insurance; and 5 were transferred from 
private to town or State. 

The most striking results obtained during the year, as also 
in 1918, have been seen in the cases treated by heliotherapy. 
It is now two years since a few cases of surgical tuberculosis 
for which operative treatment could not easily be obtained, 
were exposed to the direct rays of the sun with results that 
were most surprising. This led to the application of helio- 
therapy to other cases with like results, and at the present 
time it is our firm conviction that the majority of tubercular 
complications found in our pulmonary cases can be entirely 
cleared up by heliotherapy if the pulmonary condition of the 
patient is not so far advanced as to be not amenable to treat- 
ment. Some of the cases which have appeared hopeless, but 
which have entirely cleared up with the restoration of function, 
are advanced tuberculosis of carpus, mediastinal abscess, hip 
disease, advanced cervical adenitis, tubercular lesions of the 
elbow, spine, femur, tibia and ankle, all with one or more 
chronic sinuses; also two empyema cases. Thirty-five pul- 
monary cases without complications have been treated by 
heliotherapy, of which 31 have shown marked improvement, 
while 4, which were hemorrhage cases, did not improve. As a 
matter of routine all tubercular laryngitis cases are exposed to 
the sun's rays, application being made to the outside of the 
throat, and it is believed that recovery in many cases has been 
hastened thereby. In all but the severest weather the direct 
sunlight is applied daily to the site of the complicating lesion, 
the time of exposure being governed by the stage of treatment 
and the location of the lesion. It has been found that the 
same results were obtained more promptly, especially in cold 
weather, by concentrating the sun's rays upon the area to be 
treated by means of a 12-inch double convex lens.

PENIKESE HOSPITAL, PENIKESE ISLAND. 
Frank H. Parker, M.D., Superintendent. 

Opened November 17, 1905. This institution is administered 
directly by the Board. Total valuation of plant, $144,382.70. 
Normal capacity, 19. Value per unit of capacity, $7,599.09. 

Provides hospital care and treatment for persons afflicted 
with leprosy. 

During the year 13 patients have been under care. This 
total is the same as in 1918. Eleven of the patients cared for 
were in residence at the beginning of the year. Two were 
admitted during the year, leaving 13 on November 30, 1919. 

No patients have died during the year, and none of those 
who were with us at the beginning of the year has shown a 
condition sufficient to warrant discharge. Two new cases have 
been sent to Penikese since the last report: one, a Chinaman, 
was admitted to the hospital May 25, with a tubercular form 
of the disease. This man was twenty-three years old, and had 
been in the United States over two years. The second case 
was a Greek, twenty-four years old, who was admitted to the 
hospital November 8, with the anaesthetic form of the disease. 
He had been in this State eight years. 

With an appropriation of $33,700, a total of $33,703.21 was 
expended for the maintenance of this institution. Three dollars 
and twenty-one cents was appropriated from the Governor's 
special fund to cover this expense. Of this amount, $11,842.69 
was for salaries, wages and labor; all other expenses, $21,860.52. 
Ratio of daily average number of persons employed to daily 
average number of inmates, 1.4 to 1. For detailed analysis of 
receipts and expenditures, see treasurer's statement following, 
and also pages 53-80.

FINANCIAL SUPERVISION OF THE STATE CHARITABLE 

INSTITUTIONS. 

The Board in its supervision of the financial administration 
of the several State charitable institutions — the plant and 
its upkeep and maintenance — inspects each institution through 
paid officers monthly; also through its own committees and 
individual members. 

Monthly analysis is made of articles of food, coal, hay and 
grain purchased, and tabulated results sent to each institution. 
In addition, sundry tabulations covering the year's operations 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 49 

have been prepared. The Board has co-operated with the 
several institutions in bringing about the joint consideration of 
purchasing supplies, resulting in regular conferences upon 
matters of common interest, especially functions of purchasing. 
This year, as formerly, the Board has been instrumental in 
bringing about the joint purchase of such staple articles as 
incandescent lamps. In the case of lamps, a large saving has 
been made in the total outlay. 

The following tables are designed to show in detail the 
financial condition of each institution. A convenient summary 
of the State's property represented by each institution is fol- 
lowed by an analysis of receipts and a similar analysis of 
expenditures. Finally, a more detailed analysis of expendi- 
tures is followed by a comparison of all appropriations and the 
expenditures made therefrom. 

I. Inventory. 

Inventory of State property represented by the institutions 
is shown in Table IV. This tabulation is in four parts. Parts 
I and II exhibit realty; Part III shows personalty; Part IV 
summarizes the whole. 

From Parts I and II it appears that on November 30, 1919, 
the ten State charitable institutions returned $5,615,760.71 in 
real estate, 8265,514.27 of this amount being land, and 84,494,- 
140.50 representing buildings. Chattels real and other items 
of betterment are not separately considered; hence water, 
telephone, fire and sewerage systems are to be found in the 
miscellaneous columns under the heading of "buildings." 

Part III shows the uniform analysis of personal property 
adopted by the State auditor, to the amount of 81,126,620.21. 
The total valuation, real and personal, as shown in Part IV 
is 85,615,760.71.

II. Receipts. 
Table V is designed to show every item of income to each 
institution from whatever source for whatever purpose, except- 
ing certain private funds, casting all together for ready com- 
parison. The tabulation also shows such of the receipts as 
under the law are available for maintenance purposes in 1920. 
According to this table the total receipts from all sources were 
$3,132,395.33. Of this amount, 82,847,058.73 was received 
from the state treasury, and the remainder, 8285,336.60, came 
in on account of the institution, through board of patients, sale 
of products or otherwise. Of this latter figure, 8200,190.84 is 
available for maintenance purposes in 1920.

III. Expenditures. 

Table VI, divided into four parts., shows all expenditures of 
whatever nature on account of the several institutions. Part I 
deals with maintenance only. Part II exhibits outlays for 
special purposes, divided into four headings, namely, "land," 
''buildings," "furnishings and equipment" and "miscellaneous."' 
In Part III are shown all moneys expended for purposes so far 
apart from the institution proper as to fall outside the uniform 
classifications. With two exceptions trustees' expenses appear 
in the miscellaneous column under "maintenance." These 
two exceptions are expenses of the trustees of the training 
schools and of the trustees in charge of the State sanatoria. 
Because of various duties these two Boards of Trustees have 
appropriations apart from the grants for their institutions. 
Part III, in addition to these special outlays, shows also the 
industries fund administered by the trustees in charge of the 
State Farm. This fund is self-perpetuating, and, though a 
State outlay, is so far separate as to require individual treat- 
ment in the classification. Part IV summarizes the whole. 

The table shows that $2,438,077.12 was spent for mainte- 
nance, exclusive of expenditures for special purposes mentioned 
in Part II. which amounted to $132,285.40. By adding to these 
amounts $277,068.15 for sundry expenditures, as shown in Part 
III, we find a grand total of $2,847,430.67 expended on account 
of the eleven institutions. 

In addition to the total expenditures as above indicated, two 
institutions — Lyman School and the Industrial School for 
Girls — have private trust funds which are administered for the 
benefit of inmates, but independently of the State's investment. 
The custody of each is vested in the State Treasurer, whose 
duty it is to invest the same and to pay therefrom at the request 
of the trustees. Three of those trusts — the Lyman fund, the 
Lyman trust fund and the Lamb fund — applied to Lyman 
School, while the Fay, the Mary Lamb and the Rogers book 
fund pertain to the Industrial School for Girls. From these 
sources a total of $300.81 was expended during the year, of 
which $24 was from the Mary Lamb fund. -S100 from the Fay 
fund, S14S.66 from the Lyman trust fund, and the balance from 
the Rogers book fund. 



56 STATE BOARD OF CHAEITY. [P. D. 17. 

IV. Analysis of Maintenance and Xet Per Capita Cost. 
The uniform analysis of maintenance expenditures comprises 
twelve classes or divisions, namely, " salaries and wages;" 
"religious instruction;" "travel, transportation and office 
expenses;" "food;" "clothing and material;" "furnishings and 
household supplies;" "medical and general care;" "heat, light 
and power;" "farm and stable;" "grounds;" "repairs, ordi- 
nary;" and "repairs and renewals." Table VII is correspond- 
ingly divided into thirteen parts, the last of which is a summary 
of the whole, and shows for each of the eleven institutions the 
total cost of maintenance for each of the main headings in the 
analysis. It further shows all receipts from sales or refunds; 
the difference, which is the net cost to the institution; and the 
average net weekly per capita cost to the institution, with a 
column showing the corresponding per capita for the three-year 
period just ended.

68 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17, 



V. Comparison of Appropriations and Expenditures 

v THEREFROM. 

Table VIII affords comparisons of appropriations for main- 
tenance with the respective amounts expended therefrom. 
Appropriations are classified as " receipts available for main- 
tenance" and " appropriations in addition to such receipts." 
All receipts at the four sanatoria and the Hospital School, 
though turned, like the receipts of all the other institutions, 
into the State treasury, are by law applicable to maintenance 
in the succeeding year. Receipts at the remaining institutions 
are not so applied. By this comparison the total maintenance 
expenditures were 878,119.46 less than the amounts appropri- 
ated. This balance reverts into the treasury. 

Receipts of 1918 available for maintenance in 1919 totaled 
8200,480.60. This sum was received largely on account of 
board of patients at the State sanatoria and the Hospital 
School .

72 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



VII. Net Cost to the Commonwealth. 
The net cost to the State of maintaining or conducting each 
institution is the difference between total expenditures and the 
total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury. 
These total expenditures must cover all moneys spent for main- 
tenance and special purposes, together with all outlays for 
sundry purposes, apart from the institution, and interest on 
outstanding bonds. These items are compared in Table X. 
For convenience the daily average number of inmates and the 
net weekly per capita cost to the State are added. This tabu- 
lation shows a daily average number of inmates of 6,190.77, 
and expenditures for all purposes of 82,920,273.88. Total 
receipts from institutions, i.e., sources other than the State 
treasury, amounted to 8285,336.60. The net cost to the State 
for all eleven institutions amounted to 82,634,937.28, making 
the net weekly per capita cost to the State 88.162.

74 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17, 



VIII. Analysis of Pay Roll. 
Table XI, divided into six parts, shows a comparative analysis 
of the pay roll for each of the eleven institutions. The first 
five parts divide service into five classes, namely, " general 
administration," "medical service," "ward service," "repairs" 
and "farm, stable and grounds." Part VI summarizes the 
whole. The table shows the daily average number employed 
in 1918 and 1919, with the same average for the three-year 
period ending November 30, 1918. The same treatment is given 
the average monthly compensation and the weekly per capita 
cost. The total average number employed was 1,234,632, 
while for the three-year period preceding 1919 it was 1,284,018. 
The total average monthly compensation paid was 8629.540, 
as against S530.589 in the preceding three-year period. Miscel- 
laneous and incidental employment not entered upon the pay 
rolls of the institutions does not appear in this tabulation. The 
number of inmates to one employee is slightly less than last 
Year in most of the institutions.

PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. SI 



THE COUNTY TRAINING SCHOOLS. 

Lender the provisions of Revised Laws, chapter 46, section 2, 
the five county training schools for truants and habitual school 
offenders are subject to the visitation of this Board, which is 
required to report thereon in its annual report. The schools are 
as follows : — 

Essex County Training School, Lawrence. 
Hampden County Training School, Springfield. 
Middlesex County Training School, North Chelmsford. 
Norfolk, Bristol and Plymouth Union Training School, Walpole. 
Worcester County Training School, Oakdale (West Boylston). 

The accompanying table shows the number and movement of 
population in these institutions for the fiscal year ending 
December 31, 1919, and also the average weekly per capita 
cost of maintenance, subtracting all receipts from private 
sources. 

As will be seen from the table there were 667 children in the 
five schools during 1919. The year opened with 420. In the 
succeeding twelve months 247 were admitted and 258 were 
discharged, leaving 409 in residence at the close of the year. 
This figure is 12 less than the corresponding number for 1918, 
— a decrease made chiefly by the number of releases at two 
schools rather than to more commitments. 

The average age of the children at the time of their admit- 
tance was eleven years, nine months and twenty-three days. 
Every child must be discharged,- by requirement of the statute, 
upon reaching the age of sixteen.

between thirty and forty; 22 between forty and fifty; 34 be- 
tween fifty and sixty; 59 between sixty and seventy; 101 
between seventy and eighty; 65 between eighty and ninety; 
6 ninety or over. For their support they were paid in 15 cases 
less than S2 per week; in 43 cases, from $2 to $3 per week; 
in 61 cases, from S3 to S4 per week; and in 184 cases — mostly 
of old and feeble persons — the rate varied from $4 to SI 6, 
according to the amount of care required. Of the whole num- 
ber, 50 per cent were reported to be in fairly good, or good 
physical condition, and 84 per cent in good mental condition. 
In all but 15 cases, or 5 per cent, they were apparently receiving 
good care. There were 125 able to do light work, either in the 
house or about the premises. There were 20 supported in their 
own homes. In 174 cases, according to the reports, the over- 
seers of the poor complied with the law requiring them to visit 
these persons at least once in every six months; in 67 cases 
they made one visit a year; and in the remaining 62 cases no 
evidence of visits was found.

Dependent Minor Children with Settlement provided 
for in Almshouses. 
Visits were made in the cases of 1(34 children — 78 boys and 
86 girls — reported to be cared for by the following cities and 
towns in their almshouses: Amesbury, 1; Athol, 1; Barnstable, 
1; Boston, 48; Cambridge, 3; Fairhaven, 1; Fall River, 15;

Salem, 2; Southbridge, 2; Springfield, 42; Warren, 1; Wal- 
tham, 1; Worcester, 7. In addition to this number, 101 had 
been removed from the almshouse before the time of visitation. 
Of the number visited, 13 were so defective in mind or body as 
to render their retention in the almshouse desirable, 4 attended 
school, and 1 assisted in the almshouse. Five were visited 
twice, 2 were removed after visit. 

Dependent Minor Children with Settlement provided 
for Outside of Almshouses. 
As shown by the Board's visitation of the 1,264 children 
reported by the local authorities as fully supported outside 
of Almshouses on January 1, 1919, and on July 1, 1919, 2 had 
died and 102 had been removed before visits could be made. 
The remaining 1,150 — 586 boys and 564 girls — were supported 
by 92 cities and towns, as follows: Agawam, 1; Attleboro, 6; 
Avon, 1; Barnstable, 1; Becket, 3; Belchertown, 1; Berlin, 5;

Of the whole number, 105 were cared for and treated in 
public and private hospitals and asylums. There were 853 who 
attended school and 353 who did more or less work. Of the 
whole number, 1,056 were in good, or fairly good, physical 
condition, and 1,081 in good, or fairly good, mental condition. 
The price of board varied from 81 to 86 per week. These 
children were found to be well cared for, with a few excep- 
tions which have been brought to the attention of the local 
overseers. 



The Penalty incurred by Certain Cities and Towns for 
Failure to make their Pauper Returns during the 
Month of April, 1919. 
Sections 39-42 of chapter 81 of the Revised Laws, as amended 

by chapter 115 of the Acts of 1905, are as follows: — 

Section 39. Overseers of the poor shall keep full and accurate 
records, in a form prescribed by the state board of charity, of the 
paupers fully supported, the persons relieved and partially sup- 
ported, and the travellers and vagrants lodged at the expense of 
their cities and towns and of the amount paid for such support 
and relief. 

Section 40. They shall annually in April, for the year ending 
on the last day of March, return to the state board of charity the 
number of such persons supported and relieved, the cost thereof, 
and a record of those fully supported. 

Section 41. In the year nineteen hundred and five and in 
every tenth year thereafter the return of the overseers of the 
poor shall contain true and correct answers to such additional 
inquiries as the state board of charity may deem it advisable 
to make. 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 87 

Section 42. If the overseers of the poor of a city or town 
refuse or neglect to comply with the requirements of the three 
preceding sections, such city or town shall forfeit one dollar for 
each day's neglect, and the amount of such forfeiture shall be 
deducted from any amount to which said city or town may be 
entitled in reimbursement for relief of state paupers as provided 
in sections fifteen and sixteen of chapter eighty-five; and if no 
such reimbursement shall be due to said city or town, the for- 
feiture shall be deducted from any money which may be due to 
it from the commonwealth. 



Under these laws the Board reported to the Treasurer of the 
Commonwealth the names of the cities and towns that failed to 
make their pauper returns during the month of April, 1919 
together with the amount of penalty incurred in each instance 
as follows: Ashland, $15; Ayer, $230; Bedford, $56; Berkley

SUPERVISION OF MOTHERS' AID. 

Since September 1, 1913, when the law 7 became operative, 
until November 30, 1919, all of the 38 cities and more than 
250 of the towns of the Commonwealth have sent in to the 
State Board of Charity notices that they were aiding mothers 
and their dependent children under fourteen years of age to 



SS STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

the number of 9,278 mothers. Of these, 7,983 mothers had a 
legal settlement in some city or town of the Commonwealth, 
while 1,295 had no legal settlement. 

During the last fiscal year (December 1, 1918, to November 
30, 1919) 38 cities and 251 towns sent in new notices to the 
number of 1,627, involving 5,420 dependent children under 
fourteen years of age. Of these, 1,348 mothers with 4,569 
dependent children under fourteen years of age had a legal 
settlement within the Commonwealth; 279 of the mothers 
with 851 dependent children under fourteen years of age had 
no legal settlement in the Commonwealth. 

Of the whole number of 1,627 mothers reported upon, 1,325 
mothers with 4,373 dependent children were widows, while 302 
mothers with 1,047 dependent children were not widows. 

The 302 mothers who were not widows were classified as 
follows: 172 had living husbands totally incapacitated by 
chronic illness (of whom 140 were tubercular); 47 had living 
husbands who were insane; 57 had living husbands who had 
deserted; 10 had living husbands who had been divorced or 
legally separated; 16 had living husbands who had been im- 
prisoned. 

At the beginning of the fiscal year (December 1, 1918) there 
were 3,366 active cases in receipt of mothers' aid; 1,627 new 
notices were reported during the year and 1,250 cases were 
closed during the year, leaving 3,743 active cases on November 
30, 1919. 

These cases were distributed as follows: Abington, 6

Boston had 1,236 active cases, or more than one third of the 
entire number. Lowell had 157, New Bedford 139, Worcester 
132 and Cambridge 125 active cases. 

The average number of dependent children per family 
was 3.3. 



90 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The average amount of aid granted per family by the over- 
seers of the poor on date of notice was $8.90 per week. This 
figure does not indicate the average total income of the family, 
but it is the average amount of aid granted by the overseers of 
the poor to supplement all the other sources of family income. 

Influenza Epidemic. 

The effect of the influenza epidemic which began in Septem- 
ber, 1918, extended throughout the first three months of the 
fiscal year. There were 440 new notices received during the 
months of December, 1918, January and February, 1919; 216 
of these notices were received in the month of January when 
the epidemic was at its height. 

There was much illness reported in the families left fatherless 
by the epidemic, whole families having been stricken at the 
same time. There was in consequence a very great increase 
in the cost of medical aid during that period. 

Cost of Living. 

The cost of living increased steadily during the year, neces- 
sitating increases of aid to individual families beyond amounts 
ever before granted out of the public treasury. The largest 
amount granted to any one family was $25 per week, the 
smallest amount $1.50 per week. 

The housing problem has been acute during the year, 
especially in manufacturing centers. Families forced to vacate 
tenements due to the sale of the houses in which they lived 
have had to store their furniture and board with relatives for 
weeks at a time until suitable tenements elsewhere could be 
found for them. In several cases the overseers of the poor of 
certain towns were unable to find a single vacant tenement 
within their town lines, and so had to remove families and 
re-establish them in near-by towns. 

Rents have been raised $1 to $3 per week in many cases. 
Landlords have been unwilling to make necessary repairs owing 
to the high cost of labor and of building materials. 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 91 

Working Conditions. 

In general, working conditions have been good throughout the 
year. In many industries the high wages that prevailed during 
the war were made permanent and were even advanced. 

After the signing of the armistice in November, 1918, there 
was a great falling off in the work of the munitions factories 
and shipyards, but these workers were soon absorbed by other 
industries which had been shorthanded during the war due to 
the exodus of men workers into the war industries. 

Many mothers' aid cases were closed in consequence of the ab- 
normally increased earnings of members of the family of working 
age. 

Meetings with the Overseers of the Poor. 

Two large groups of overseers of the poor were invited by 
the State Board of Charity to meet with it and discuss the 
workings of the law and the policies adopted by the Board. 

The first of these meetings for the overseers of the poor of the 
eastern part of the State was held at the State House, April 
11, 1919, and was largely attended. 

A meeting for overseers of the poor of the western part of the 
State was held at Greenfield, Mass., May 19, 1919. This was 
a much smaller group, and the discussion was much more 
general. These district or sectional meetings promote a better 
understanding between the overseers of the poor and the 
supervisory board, and should be productive of much good. 

Cost of Mothers' Aid. 

State Appropriations to Date. 

September 1, 1913, to November 30, 1914 (15 months) . . 8175,000 

December 1, 1914, to November 30, 1915 250,000 

December 1, 1915, to November 30, 1916 300,000 

December 1, 1916, to November 30, 1917 . . . . . 400,000 

December 1, 1917, to November 30, 1918 . . \ . 475.000 

December 1, 1918, to November 30, 1919 550^000 

The State reimburses for one-third of the amount of aid granted 
in cases where there is a legal settlement, and for the whole 
amount of aid granted in cases where there is no legal settlement. 

The State's share of the expense as shown by the appropriations 
is approximately 45 per cent of the entire cost of mothers' aid.

SUPERVISION OF WAYFARERS' LODGES AND PUBLIC 
LODGING HOUSES. 

Under the Acts of 1914, chapter 606, the Board makes an 
annual inspection of all wayfarers' lodges and public lodging 
houses whose charges are twenty-five cents per night and less, 
and whose capacity is ten or more beds. 

Changed conditions in the labor market, with the unprece- 
dented demand for all types of laborers at attractive wages, 
together with the enforcement of national prohibition, have 
caused a marked falling off in the patronage of public lodging 
houses in this State. Census in the commercial houses has in 
some instances fallen to 30 per cent of capacity. In the case 
of one charitable organization it has declined to twenty per 
cent. 

A number of the charitable lodging houses heretofore main- 
taining a minimum price of 25 cents have been forced to raise 
the price to 35 and 40 cents, which removes them automatically 
from the class coming under the supervision of the Board. 
Of this type are the houses of the Railway Young Men's 
Christian Association, a group which has always been main- 
tained in such a manner as to give a maximum of comfort and 
cleanliness at a minimum charge. The curtailments in capacity 
noted in last year's report, such as the closing of upper floors 
or particular dormitories, has been continued. The prices of 
rent, fuel, labor, laundry and the replacement of bedding have 
shown a marked advance, while the minimum price of a bed, 
usually 20 cents, together with the decrease in the number of 
lodgers, has robbed the business of even a fair share of profit. 
'While the concern operated on a charity basis is not dependent 
upon the necessity of making a profit, and can survive, there- 
fore, where the commercial house cannot, it must not be 
forgotten that the same forces which operate to increase at 
least the commercial venture operate also to increase the 
demands upon the philanthropic public who support the chari- 
table lodging house. 

The number and classification of lodging houses and way- 
farers' lodges under this act operating in Massachusetts during 
1919 are as follows: Boston — municipal, 2; commercial, 9; 



94 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

charitable, 5. Fall River — commercial, 1; charitable, 2. 
Lawrence — commercial, 1. Lowell — commercial, 1. Xew 
Bedford — charitable, 2. Springfield — municipal, 1; chari- 
table, 2. 

In the main a good standard of cleanliness is maintained. 
Sanitary arrangements and board of health rules are lived up 
to, and in every case coming to the Board's attention the 
lodger is getting ample return for the price paid. The Board's 
inspector has had no occasion to enter complaints concerning 
any conditions; on the contrary, he has found a willingness 
on the part of proprietors and superintendents to do their 
utmost for the comfort of their lodgers. 

ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES OF THE BOARD. 

The State Outdoor Poor. 

Numbers. 

The statutes provide that the expense of such relief, following 
proper notice to the Board, and approval after consideration, 
shall be reimbursed by the Commonwealth. In accordance 
with these laws, 12,693 such notices were received during the 
official year from 228 cities and towns on account of 25,392 
persons and 8,875 patients, a net decrease of 3,351, or about 
20 per cent, from the previous year. Of these notices 6,365, 
concerning 6,365 individuals, were on account of persons too 
sick to be removed; 2,323 notices, concerning 2,323 individuals, 
were on account of persons sick with dangerous diseases; 2-19 
notices, concerning 1,036 individuals, were for cases of wife- 
settlement; and 3,756 notices, covering 15,668 individuals, 
were for temporary aid and transportation. Of the total 
number of notices above-mentioned, 1,851, concerning 4,131 
individuals, were in cases on account of which a previous notice 
had been received during the year. 

(a) Cases of Sick State Poor. — The 6,365 notices of sick 
State poor were sent by 144 cities and towns concerning 6,365 
persons who were represented as too ill to be removed. This 
number shows a net decrease in the number of notices over the 
previous year of 2,176, or about 25.5 per cent, and, as compared 
with the official year 1916-17, a decrease of 1,557, or about 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 95 

19.6 per cent. Of these notices numbering 6,365, 2,923, or 
about 46 per cent, were from the city of Boston, viz., 2,897 
from the Boston City Hospital, 25 from the institutions depart- 
ment, and 1 in the home. The number of visits made by the 
officers of the Board in the investigation of these 6,365 notices 
was 10,741. As a result of these investigations, the overseers 
of the poor were directed to discontinue aid in 702 cases on 
account of the recovery of the patient sufficiently to permit 
of his removal to the State Infirmary. In 162 cases aid was 
refused because at the time of the application the patient could 
have been removed without danger. Out of the 4,639 cases 
investigated by the visitors, settlements were found in 218, 
covering 218 persons. Among those reported as sick there 
were 367 deaths. 

(b) Cases of Dangerous Diseases. — The number of notices 
received was 2,323 from 94 cities and towns, concerning 2,323 
persons, all patients. These figures show a net decrease of 479, 
or about 17 per cent, from the previous year and, as compared 
with the year 1916-17, a decrease of 1,343, or 36.6 per cent. 
Of these 2,323 notices, 864, or about 37.2 per cent, were from 
the city of Boston. The following diseases were reported: 
anterior poliomyelitis, 2; cerebrospinal meningitis, 7; diphtheria, 
585; dog bite, 2; gonorrhea, 2; leprosy, 3; measles, 71; 
ophthalmia neonatorum, 53; scarlet fever, 489; smallpox, 22; 
suppurative conjunctivitis, 14; syphilis, 6; trachoma, 7; tuber- 
culosis, 1,010; typhoid fever, 50. The number of visits made 
by the officers of the Board in these cases was 4,550, and of 
1,3S1 new cases investigated, settlements were found in 215, 
covering 215 persons. 

(c) Cases of Wife-settlement. — The number of notices received 
was 249 from 31 cities and towns, concerning 1,036 persons, 
of whom 187 were sick. These figures show a net decrease 
in the number of notices as compared with the previous year 
of 94, or about 28.3 per cent, and, as compared with the year 
1916-17, a decrease of 292, or about 54 per cent. Of these 249 
notices, 110, or about 44 per cent, were from the city of Boston. 
As these 249 notices represent men whose families have settle- 
ments in some city or town within the Commonwealth, and 1 
of these men was found to have a settlement, the total number 



96 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

aided by the State was 248, of whom 129 were sick. The 
number of visits made in the cases was 324. 

(d) Cases of Temporary Aid. — The number of notices received 
was 3,756, concerning 15,668 persons, from 190 cities and towns. 
The whole number shows a net decrease as compared with the 
preceding year of 602, or about 13.8 per cent, and with the year 
1916-17, a decrease of 1,908, or about 33.7 per cent. Of these 
notices, 433, or about 11.5 per cent, were received from the city 
of Boston. The number of visits made under these notices was 
5,497. There were 1,286 new cases investigated by the agents 
of the Board, and 223 settlements were found, covering 820 
persons. As a result of visitation, aid was discontinued in 442 
cases, and in 6 cases aid was refused. 

Transportation has been furnished during the year to 57 per- 
sons. They were sent to other States, as follows: Connecticut, 
9; Maine, 6; New Hampshire, 6; New York, 23; Rhode 
Island, 8; Vermont, 5. (Revised Laws, chapter 81, section 
21.) 

Transportation has also been provided for 7 shipwrecked 
seamen, from Nantucket and Truro, to Boston. (Revised 
Laws, chapter 66, section 7.) 

Cost 

The number, amount and allowance of the bills examined by 
the Board on account of cases of sick State poor, wife-settle- 
ment, dangerous diseases, temporary aid and burial, are shown 
in the following tabulation. It is to be noted that the total 
shown in this table may vary somewhat from the total paid out 
of the treasury during the fiscal year from the appropriation in 
question. This possible variance arises from the fact that bills 
audited by this Board are in some cases not actually paid 
during the year for which the audit is shown. For actual 
expenditure out of these respective appropriations see page 148.

weeks after admission in order that plans may be made for 
their discharge when physically fit. The visitors were re- 
sponsible for 591 discharges, the Reformatory for Women, 24, 
the Division of State Minor Wards and the State Industrial 
School 145, making a total of 760. 

Care of Patients at the Institution. — There is urgent need of 
additional accommodations that will permit better classification 
of the women patients. 

Very little classification and segregation is possible with the 
present equipment; and the lack of this causes some unhappi- 
ness among the inmates. An example of what the administra- 
tion would like to do is the special building for respectable old 
ladies w T ho have come to spend their last days. Many have 
single rooms in which they are allowed their few treasures and 
keepsakes. All have their afternoon tea (at a very slight addi- 
tional cost), and the nurse in charge is always doing much for 
their individual comfort. It is the earnest desire of the superin- 
tendent and his staff to give like consideration to all patients 
when better accommodations are granted. 

1 Not including babies. 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 101 

The medical care is excellent. Patients go out frequently 
complaining that they have had no treatment. Upon investiga- 
tion it has been found that the patients did have treatment, 
but not the kind expected; for example, a woman infected with 
gonorrhea complained that she had not received salvarsan, and 
so thought she had had no treatment for her disease. Many 
patients are found to have come too late in the development 
of the disease for any treatment to be effective, and all our 
physicians can do is to make them as comfortable as possible. 

It is true we have too few nurses for our great number of 
patients, but that is the condition existing in all hospitals 
to-day. The doctors and nurses at the State Infirmary do 
more for the patients than is probably done in our city hos- 
pitals, because they realize and appreciate the utter loneliness 
and the hopeless suffering of our inmates. 

Again the complaint comes that the patients are overworked. 
They are never overworked. It would be better for their 
physical and mental recovery to insist on more work if facilities 
permitted. The discipline would be much easier for the 
physicians if hands were busy and tongues quiet. There are 
some who will not work, or who do such slovenly work that it 
is better left undone; and this group of women the institution 
ought to have the right to discipline. If the work could be 
properly supervised by a trained person, and a standard 
demanded of every woman and girl, the occupations of the 
inmates would become educational, and would fit them for 
future work in the community. The nurses should not be 
expected to train these difficult patients, for they already have 
too much to do. Systematized work by the inmates, with the 
good recreation already provided by the institution, would make 
a happy population. One advance has been made in this 
direction by demanding that the girls who are infected with 
syphilis and gonorrhea work a specified number of hours each 
day in a special sewing room arranged for them. 

The food is always unsatisfactory, but this is likely to be so 
even in the most expensive boarding houses. The best raw 
materials are provided, but here again the administration is 
obliged, by reason of limited appropriations, to employ second- 
rate service to prepare it. It is a comparatively simple matter 



102 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

for a private institution to remedy an inadequate budget by 
calling upon benevolent individuals in the community, but the 
public institution has no such good friends. 

Yet, with all the handicap of greater problems and smaller 
means, Tewksbury is very human. If the public could see 
the good which is being done and the results which are being 
accomplished there they would be more kindly and constructive 
in their criticism. 

Discharges from the State Infirmary. — The older women who 
have no homes are sent to employment, usually domestic. The 
chronic alcoholic has begun to show the effect of prohibition, 
and has made her last visit to Tewksbury on account of drink. 
For this reason we have missed several of our annual winter 
residents. These women are hard to place because, although 
good workers, they are unreliable and usually quarrelsome. 
Alcohol has stamped their character, and they are too old to 
reform. In most cases old age and arteriosclerosis will return 
them to Tewksbury to die. 

Children. — In behalf of the Division of State Minor Wards 
it must be said that well children are not allowed to remain 
indefinitely, as sometimes supposed. Recently a census was 
taken of the 256 State wards, and only 14 were well, and these 
were removed within a week of notice. A group of 17 children, 
not State wards, all under fifteen years of age, were sent in by 
the overseers of the poor for various kinds of treatment, in- 
cluding tuberculosis. Of these, 3 died; 10 were returned to 
relatives after investigation; and 4 were discharged to social 
agencies. 

Tubercular Patients, and Others with Diseases grouped as 
Miscellaneous. — Forty-three women, between the ages of 
twenty and forty years, were admitted in this group. Twenty- 
two had tuberculosis, 12 of whom died; 21 had various diseases, 
of whom 4 died; 12 were returned to their homes; 7 were 
furnished employment; 2 were returned to the court; 1 was 
committed as insane; 3 were discharged to social agencies; 
and 1 was returned to public authorities in Pennsylvania. 

Patients with Venereal Disease. — This group, in addition to 
the unmarried mothers, is now receiving special attention.

ary they become accustomed to regular treatment, and have 
been given personal talks on its value. When a patient is 
returned home, she and the members of the family are in- 
structed how to care for the disease and how to avoid danger 
to others. She is also referred to a clinic for out-patient 
treatment, and if she is to return to day work, arrangements 
are made for treatment at an evening clinic. Later she is 
reported to the social worker of the clinic, and is followed 
until discharged as well by the physician. If she is returned 
to cities, other than Boston, she is referred for treatment to 
the nearest State clinic, or to a private physician. 

If the patient is returned to a social agency, or the court, 
the supervision is resumed by that agency or the court, 
respectively, as it is not necessary to have two visitors super- 
vising the girl. 

It is sometimes difficult to place a girl undergoing treatment 
for venereal disease at service, but it is accomplished. If a 
girl is placed at service in a private family, there must be no 
small children in the home. The employer is informed of the 
girl's condition and co-operates in a definite plan for her to 
make regular visits to the hospital for treatment. As many 
people are prejudiced against this type of girl, and have no 
sympathy for her, pains are taken to make them under- 
stand the facts of venereal disease. Often the employer, who 
at first refused to have such a girl in her home, is the most 
successful in helping her in her treatment when she understands 
the purpose at which we are aiming. 

An unmarried mother and her child, under treatment for 
venereal disease is placed at service in a private family with 
provisions for continuance of the treatment. Both mother 
and child, in this way, receive a good home and kindly super- 
vision. 

The difficult girl, who has no one especially interested in her, 
is placed at service as a ward maid in a hospital, with an 
explanation of the case to the matron, who is always willing 
to co-operate with the visitor and to report if the girl is not 
doing well. Frequently it is possible for her to receive treat- 
ment at the hospital. The discipline exercised in an institu- 
tion is usually the training this girl needs. 



PartL] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 105 

When a patient belongs to another State she is returned 
to the public authorities of that State and the Board of Health 
notified as to her physical condition, and treatment arranged 
for her. 

Experience has taught the wisdom of establishing rules and 
policies in our follow-up work. When the source of infection 
is known, it is the duty of the visitor to have that source 
examined and treated to prevent further infection. Patients 
with gonorrhea are brought to the clinic within one week after 
their discharge from the State Infirmary. They are referred 
to the social worker of the clinic, who reports to our visitor 
if the patient does not come regularly for treatment. Patients 
with syphilis are referred to the clinic one month from the date 
of the last treatment at the Infirmary. The same plan is 
carried out by the social worker of this clinic in co-operation 
with our visitor. Many girls become discouraged, as treat- 
ment is often of long duration. It is the special duty of the 
visitor, therefore, to see her girls frequently, to encourage them 
in their efforts to get well and to live wisely. 

Mothers with Children. — The subdivision's most intensive work 
is done with maternity cases, especially unmarried mothers.

These 166 women were accompanied by 154 children. 

There are two extremes to be noted in the attitude of man- 
kind, or, more particularly, womankind, toward the unmarried 
mother, as she faces her new situation. Many look upon her 
with pity, and in their desire to lighten her burden take from 
her all responsibility, destroying at the same time her chance 
for the development of courage and the growth of character. 

On the other hand, many are curiously interested in her 
plight, eyeing her with mingled inquisitiveness and distrust. 
She is to them psychologically interesting, but too abnormal 
to be safe. Both states of mind are to be found among social- 
workers as well as would-be employers, and both are disastrous 
to the young women in question. 

The girl who faces life with an illegitimate baby needs work 
primarily: and it must be work with which she can support 
herself and her child in cheerful, healthful surroundings. With 
this start she is quite as likely to make good as the average 
married woman with her child. "But," the kindly social 
worker exclaims, "she does not want to do housework;" or, 
"she is not strong enough to manage housework with the care 
of her child;" or, "she has never done that sort of thing, and 
is not suited to a servant's job." It is probably true that 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 107 

most married women of her class are no better trained for 
their household duties than she. Yet they succumb to the 
same petty chores in making a home. The unmarried mother 
lacks a husband's support and companionship, but she has less 
time for gossip and fruitless shopping during the day than the 
wife, and finds compensation of a sort in growing devotion to 
her child, and the sure satisfaction in work well done. 

Unfortunately, the girl who most lacks in desire for domestic 
work is the one who frequently hides her identity among 
the legitimate maternity cases in the private or general 
medical hospital. Here the highly intelligent, but perhaps 
unmoral, young woman goes through confinement under an 
assumed name, if she is clever; and if she has been sufficiently 
strong willed enough to continue her hold, secures money from 
the father of her baby, for the settlement of the hospital bill, 
so that "no questions are asked." Her whole effort is to hide 
her identity and her true story, so that when physically fit 
she may continue in her old way of living, with, of course, a 
"never again" repeated to herself as a soothing balm. The 
child will equally, of course, have a better future in some one 
else's home, as the girl has none of her own to give it, and the 
newspaper advertisement brings an embarrassing supply of 
futures for this pitiable baby, motherless as well as fatherless. 
The hospital case of this type — and it occurs frequently — 
requires infinitely more effort in after-care and follow-up. And 
here it may be well to urge the advantage of maternity homes 
— yes, even of State infirmaries — over the private or general 
medical institution. The unmarried girl is in need of definite 
prenatal educational instruction, having in view her assumption 
of a new responsibility. Thus only can she through long train- 
ing reinforce a character innately weak, and develop a depth 
of love for her child which will withstand counter-influences 
later on. 

More than one married mother lacks in desire for her 
coming child, yet the original want of enthusiasm is forgotten 
in her later devoted love. Human respect, care for what 
people will say, is responsible for much on the part of the 
unmarried mother, who is ill-advised bv nurse, doctor, friend

or parent. There is a noticeable quality of health and con- 
tentment in many illegitimate babies. It may be due somewhat 
to the fact that they receive more maternal care than many 
married mothers, with servants, take time to give. Of these 
children many benefit by the robust constitutions of the parents. 

The worker in this field of social service soon comes to 
observe that in more ways than one these unmarried mothers 
are very like married mothers, — some bright and pleasure- 
loving; some dull, and at the mercy of another's influence. 
Through undue amount of temptation, inherent weakr. 
poor supervision of parents, they have placed themselves in 
another group. Let them be trained in domestic life as nearly 
as possible akin to that of the normal married mother. 

Applications. — Seventy-two applications were referred direct 
to the office by lying-in hospitals in Boston, by other social 
agencies, and by recommendation of the medical visitor of the 
division, who visits all unmarried maternity cases which the 
State pays for in the various hospitals throughout the State. 
Transportation cases are referred by overseers of the poor and 
by private social agencies for investigation, and arrangements 
are made by this subdivision. This is all emergency work, 
and must be done at once, as the hospitals keep their patients 
on an average only ten days, and persons in need of trans- 
portation usually have no funds and no homes. 

Follow-up Work. — This should be the most important part 
of our work, but because of the inadequate staff, only four, the 
work is not yet up to the standards and ideals at which the 
department aims. Many serious difficulties have arisen be- 
cause there are but four persons to supervise 1,050 persons in 
the community at the same time that they are required to take 
interest in several hundred cases at the State Infirmary, some 
of whom require very intensive investigation. We are able to 
take care of emergencies, but many a good woman, with her 
baby, goes for months without a word or visit of encourage- 
ment. The difficult girls demand and get much attention, 
the fine, hard-working, truly repentant girl receives almost 
nothing. It is neither fair nor just, and can be remedied 
only by increasing the number of workers.

Children ix Care and Custody of the Board. 

By reference to the tables on page 118 et seq., it appears that 
at the beginning of the last official year, December 1, 1918, 
there were 6,446 children in the care and custody of the Board, 
— 282 delinquent children, 36 wayward children, 3.474 neg- 
lected children and 2,654 dependent children. There were 1,073 
children received during the year, viz., 190 delinquent children, 
5 wayward children, 369 neglected children and 509 dependent 
children. The total number under care during the year was 
therefore, 7,519. There were 1,015 discharged, viz., 175 delin- 
quent children, 5 wayward children, 427 neglected children and 
408 dependent children. At the close of the year, November 
30, 1919, there remained in charge of the Board, therefore, 
6.504 children, classified as: delinquent children, 297; wayward 
children, 36; neglected children, 3,416; and dependents, 2,755. 

Of the 6,504 children under care November 30, 1919, 6,083 
were over three years of age and cared for as follows: in places 
receiving wages, 703; in places free of expense to the State for 
board, 663; in places partly supported by the State, 191; in 



110 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

places fully supported by the State, 3,496; at the State In- 
firmary and other institutions not penal, subject to care and 
treatment, 708; in United States service, 134; married, 35; 
and whereabouts unknown, 153. 

The 421 children in the total under care November 30, 1919, 
who were under three years of age, were classified as follows: 
in homes free of expense, 20; in homes fully supported by the 
State, 379; at the State Infirmary or other institutions, not 
penal, 22. One hundred ninety-four in this group reached the 
age of three years during the year. 1 



Children under Three Years of Age. 

The total number of infants in charge of the Board at the 
end of the official year, December 1, 1918, was 447; the 
number received during the year was 293, making the whole 
number supported by the State 740. There remained at the 
close of the official year, November 30, 1919, 421 infants. Of 
the 740 infants supported, 14 were legally adopted, and 194 
were transferred, having reached the age of three years; 63 
were discharged to parents or relatives, 2 to place of settlement, 
12 to courts, and 34 died. Twenty-two of the remaining 421 
were in free homes. 

Eighty-one of the 293 infants received were committed by 
the overseers of the poor, and 9 by the superintendent of the 
State Infirmary, under the provisions of section 20, chapter 83 
of the Revised Laws. Twenty-two of this number were 
foundlings, and the remainder were indigent infants, having no 
known settlement in the Commonwealth. 

One hundred thirty infants were received under the pro- 
visions of section 36, chapter 83, and 71 were committed as 
neglected under the provisions of chapter 334, as amended by 
chapter 131 of the Acts of the year 1909, and 2 were removed 

1 In addition to these 6,504 children the Board has under supervision and visitation November 
30, 1919, 430 inmates of the Lyman School for Boys; 357 inmates of the State Industrial School 
for Girls; 250 inmates of the Industrial School for Boys; 2,791 boys and 396 girls in the custody 
of the Trustees for Massachusetts Training Schools outside of the schools; 154 boys and 126 girls, 
inmates of the Massachusetts Hospital School; 117 boys and 146 girls, inmates of the four State 
sanatoria; 60 boys and 80 girls, inmates of the State Infirmary, who are either young infants with 
their mothers, or else under hospital treatment; 409 inmates of the county training schools; and 
1,264 children supported at the expense of the cities and towns, making, approximately, a total 
of 12,800 children in the care and custody and under the supervision of the Board.

under the provisions of section 26, chapter 83 of the Revised 
Laws. 

The medical visitor and his assistants made 8,166 visits. 
This number includes visits to infant wards boarded in fami- 
lies, investigation of homes of applicants for infant wards to 
board, and inspection of homes of applicants for licenses to 
board infants; also physical examination of children at this 
office and at the Nursery. 

All children are vaccinated when received if there are no 
marks showing a previous successful vaccination. 

There were 448 children admitted to the Nursery. 

The percentage of mortality for the year, for the whole 
number supported, was 4.59+. 

Two hundred thirteen of the 740 infants supported were 
under one year of age. Twenty-three of this number died, 
making the percentage of deaths for infants under one year of 
age 10.79+. 

Of the 23 deaths of infants under one year of age at the time 
of admission to care, 1 died after reaching the age of one year, 
making the actual number of deaths of infants under one year 
22, and the percentage 10.32+. 

Mortality Rate. 

The mortality rate for the past year was 4.59+, the lowest 
since 1880, when the boarding-out system was adopted. 
Previous to 1879 these infants were sent to the State alms- 
house, now the State Infirmary, Tewksbury, where few of them 
lived to reach the age of two years. The report of that insti- 
tution for 1878 states that 92 infants were sent there in that 
year, and 85 of them died; 67 died less than a month after 
admission, and 45 in less than a fortnight. From 1880 to 1892 
a part of the infants supported by the State were sent to the 
Massachusetts Infant Asylum and St. Mary's Infant Asylum. 
Since 1892 all the infants have been boarded in homes under 
the direct care of the State Board. 

There has been a gradual reduction in the mortality rate, 
as shown by the accompanying table, from 47.15 in 1880 to 
4.59 in 1919. 

Since 1880 there have been 634 infants legally adopted.

1 Not giyen. 

The above report is made by Dr. Edwin F. Cummings, who 
has been connected with this department since October 1, 1871, 
and to whom in a very large degree is due credit for the 
remarkable decrease in mortality among the infants who have 
been his special charge for so many years. 



Children Oyer Three Years of Age. 
Children over three years of age in custody of this depart- 
ment November 30, 1919, numbered 6,083, — 2,626 girls and 
3,457 boys. There were 974 admissions last year, including 
780 new children and 194 transferred from the subdivision for 
children under three years of age. *. Thirty-two died, 259 became 
of age, and 599 were otherwise discharged. The net increase 
in population for the year is 84, or 1.4 per cent. 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 113 

There have been no radical changes in the department, nor 
has the work presented any new or startling problems. Those 
with which we have been confronted and which still exist are 
shared in common with the entire country. The decided 
increase in the cost of all the necessities of life has made it 
extremely difficult for us to secure new homes of the standard 
we have always tried to maintain. 

Applications for children were received from 1,380 families, — 
805 preferred those under twelve years of age, and for whom 
board is paid, ■ — while 575 desired those who might render 
service in the home in return for educational opportunities or 
wages. After investigation only 483 homes, or less than 32 
per cent of the entire number, were approved. 

It is our endeavor to give to each child as good educational 
opportunities as our facilities and his mentality will permit. 
Several hundred boys and girls over fourteen years of age are 
attending school, many earning their board by performing 
duties out of school hours; but the majority are fully sup- 
ported by this department. 

Three hundred twenty, or 29 per cent of 1,103 boys over 
fourteen years of age are at school under the following con- 
ditions: 19 are on parole, 20 receiving wages, 64 free of expense, 
20 partly free, and 197 boarded. 

Two hundred fifteen of the above number are in grammar 
schools, 69 in high school, 6 at trades schools, 6 at commercial 
colleges or preparatory schools, and 24 attend evening schools. 

There are 808 girls over fourteen in the care of the depart- 
ment. Four hundred thirty-five of this number, or 53 per 
cent, are attending schools; 195 are boarded, 119 partly free, 
24 free of expense, 66 receiving wages, and 31 with relatives. 

Two hundred nine of these girls are in grammar schools, 
159 in high schools, 2 in college, 2 in commercial college, 3 at 
normal school, 27 at trades schools, and 33 attend evening 
schools. 

One hundred twelve girls and 147 boys became twenty-one 
years of age and passed out of our care. We have always 
encouraged habits of thrift, and are glad to report that the 
majority of these boys and girls have left us with savings 
amounting in many instances to a considerable sum. 



114 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Numbers of our boys, now over twenty-one, are serving with 
the military and naval forces of this country, while many of 
the others are employed in farming districts or in industrial 
establishments. We are greatly encouraged by the increasing 
number of boys and girls now self-supporting and in homes of 
their own. This result is largely due to the personal influence 
of the splendid foster parents who have assumed care of the 
children, as well as the helpful influence and guidance of our 
visitors. 

There is little new to report on the subject of the care of the 
feeble-minded, but their problem is by no means solved. 

Only 11 of the many in this group needing institutional care 
could be received at the schools last year, owing to their 
already over-crowded condition, — 5 boys and 3 girls at Wren- 
tham, and 1 boy and 2 girls at Waverley. 

This has necessitated in stress of emergency the sending of 
17 boys and 19 girls to the State Infirmary, of whom 12 went 
for medical treatment and 8 as " runaways." 

On November 30, 1918, there were in special boarding homes 
52 boys and 77 girls, though the number had reached 165 
during the year. About 75 per cent of the girls were over 
fifteen years old, and from these ranks 9 girls were placed in 
families of careful selection to earn wages, and still remain 
happily at work. There were also placed with relatives on 
probation S girls and 1 boy, 4 of whom are attending school, 
and 4 of whom are employed and holding their own with 
others in their community. 

Of the total number in care but 57 are attending public 
school. Their progress is slow. 

It is greatly to be hoped that another year will find some 
institutional provision being made for these unfortunate youths 
who could be made useful and happy in occupations suited to 
their type of mind. 

Investigating Department. 
The past year has shown a decrease in the number of appli- 
cations received by this department, — for the second time in 
its history, — but a decrease so slight that it scarcely needs 



Parti.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 115 

explanation. One reason may be that the Red Cross has, in 
several instances, wholly assumed responsibility in both legiti- 
mate and illegitimate cases where a soldier has been involved. 

Many inquiries have been made as to the effect of prohibition. 
Dependency of the sort which involves the breaking up of 
families is seldom the direct result of alcoholism. Without 
doubt the records of overseers of the poor will show a very 
marked decrease in the number of families given temporary 
aid, and the number of neglected children will, as a matter of 
course, diminish with the growing difficulty to obtain intoxi- 
cants. Such children as are received by this department are 
taken mainly for such causes as orphanage, and sickness or 
low-grade mentality on the part of relatives. These causes 
may be remotely traced to alcoholism, and as such will perhaps 
in time show the effect of prohibition. 

A greater number of children was received than in the 
previous year. Private child-placing agencies are refusing more 
and more to receive children without a large proportion of 
support guaranteed. There are two groups of children in 
charge of the department which should be otherwise provided 
for. In previous reports there has been deplored the necessity 
of making a ward of a child whose sole need of care is based 
on its mentality. An otherwise self-respecting family becomes 
pauperized because there are not sufficient accommodations for 
the feeble-minded. The other group which, in the past, has 
been largely cared for by private agencies, and which is 
coming in increasing numbers to the State, concerns those 
children in need of temporary care, — the need chiefly arising 
from the illness of the mother. If the father is sick, overseers' 
aid may be given, but the removal of the mother presents a 
different problem, and the great difficulty in obtaining house- 
keepers necessitates a temporary breaking up of the family. 
When the outcome is doubtful and convalescence will cover a 
long period this department stands ready to make provision. 
But to have to provide for a child for two or three weeks 
during the slight illness of the mother seems to be the definite 
province of a private agency, even when there is no contribu- 
tion for support. Such cases place a burden on this division 
already overcrowded and delay final location of more permanent 



116

cases. Private agencies with larger proportionate forces of 
workers are certainly better equipped to meet the problem. 
Several such cases account in part for the increased numbers.

It has been the practice of the department for some years to 
attempt to fix responsibility for support on parents whenever 
conditions made it appear desirable, even though the amount 
fixed in individual instances was hardlv more than nominal.

In other cases payment has been demanded as a matter 
of justice, sometimes necessitating non-support prosecution. 
Cities and towns also are increasingly taking advantage of our 
facilities to care for their settled minor charges on the basis of 
full reimbursement. 

The following table shows the progressive increase in collec- 
tions growing out of these activities since 1913. The amounts 
received, while important in themselves, have even more value

GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD.

Licensed Boarding Houses for Infants. 

During the last official year 346 licenses to maintain boarding 
houses for infants were granted by the Board under the pro- 
visions of section 2, chapter 83, Revised Laws, in 81 cities 
and towns, in addition to the 323 licenses in force at the 
expiration of the previous year. Two hundred eighty-eight 
licenses expired by the one-year limitation; 40 were revoked, — 
35 on account of change of residence, 1 because of intemper- 
ance, 1 on account of unsanitary home (too many older chil- 
dren), 2 by death, 1 on account of withdrawal; and 335 licenses 
permitting the boarding of 696 infants in 75 towns, remained in 
force November 30, 1919. These represent the licensed homes, 
not only of infants supported by the Commonwealth, but of 
those under the age of two years placed out by parents and 
many private agencies. 

The following table shows the number of licenses issued, the 
number of cities and towns where licensees reside, the number of 
licenses expired and revoked, the whole number in force, etc., 
for the year ending November 30, 1919, and for twenty-seven 
preceding years: —

the year. 

Two hundred fifty-nine notices of the discharge from lying-in 
hospitals of infants who have had sore or inflamed eyes were 
received during the year, in accordance with Rule 9 of the 
regulations for lying-in hospitals. These notices were received 
from 29 hospitals having a total of 10,185 yearly births, showing 
that eye infection developed in 2.54 per cent of the births com- 
pared with 3.45 per cent of the births in 1918, and 5.49 per cent 
of the births in 1917. 

The following table shows in detail the reports received from 
lying-in hospitals, in accordance with Rule 9, for the period

STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17 



Tuition of Children under the Care and Control of 

the Board. 
Section 4 of chapter 44 of the Revised Laws, as amended by 
chapter 7S of the General Acts of 1915, provides that — 

For the tuition in the public schools in any city or town of a 
child between the ages of five and fifteen years who shall be 
placed elsewhere than in his own home by the state board of 
charity ... or kept under the control of . . . said board in 
said city or town, the commonwealth shall pay to said city 
or town . . . seventy-five cents for each week of five days, or 
major parts thereof, of attendance of every such child in the 
public schools. For the transportation to and from a public 
school of any child whose tuition is payable by the common- 
wealth . . . the commonwealth . . . shall pay to the city or town 
furnishing such transportation, for each week of five days or 
major part thereof, an amount equal to the average amount for 
each child paid by said city or town per week for the transporta- 
tion of children to and from school over the route by which such 
child is conveyed. 

Under the operation of this law bills received from 214 cities 
and towns for the tuition and transportation of 3,736 children, 
amounting to $54,894.94, — viz., schooling, $50,274; transpor- 
tation, $4,620.94, — were audited by the Board and paid by 
the Treasurer of the Commonwealth during the last official 
vear, as follows: —

REPORT 

OF THE 

State Board of Charity 



Part II 



Charitable Corporations 



The State Board of Charity endorses no private charitable organiza- 
tion or agency. This rule is absolute, regardless of the known standing 
of any such society. Inspection and the publication of the annual return 
in this volume do not mean approval; on the contrary, inspection may 
mean the discovery of conditions calling for condemnation. Xo agency is 
warranted, therefore, in using the fact of inspection in such manner as to 
lead the public to believe that the State Board has approved or in any 
sense recommends its work. 



PRIVATE CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. 



Government supervision of private charitable corporations is 
provided in three legislative enactments, the first of which re- 
quires the State Board of Charity to investigate all petitions 
for charitable charters, while the second and third call for 
annual inspection and annual reporting. In the following pages 
of this part of the report the functions of the Board and the 
year's work under these several statutes are explained. This 
statement is followed by abstracts of the annual returns of the 
various charities in a form intended to serve as a handbook of 
all the incorporated charities of the Commonwealth. 

Investigation of Charitable Organizations seeking Incorporation. 

Acts of 1910, Chapter 181. 

Section 1. Before making and issuing a certificate for the in- 
corporation of a charitable corporation the secretary of the com- 
monwealth shall also forward such statement as is described in 
the preceding section to the state board of charity, which shall 
immediately make an investigation as to the persons who have 
asked to be incorporated and as to the purposes of the incor- 
poration, and any other material facts relative thereto, and shall 
give them a public hearing, notice of which shall be published 
once a week for three successive weeks in some paper published 
in the county in which the corporation is to have its principal 
office or rooms, and if said office or rooms are to be in Boston, 
in some Boston daily paper, the last publication to be at least 
three days before the day set for the hearing, and shall forthwith 
report to the secretary of the commonwealth all the facts ascer- 
tained by it. If it appears to the secretary of the commonwealth 
from said report or otherwise that the probable purpose of the 
formation of the proposed corporation is to cover any illegal 
business, or that the persons asking for incorporation are not 
suitable persons, from lack of financial ability or from any other 
cause, he shall refuse to issue his certificate. If he refuses to issue 
his certificate, the persons asking to be incorporated may appeal 



iv STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

to the superior court, which shall hear the case and finally de- 
termine whether or not the certificate of incorporation shall be 
issued. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

During the year ending November 30, 1919, 67 applications 
for charters have been referred by the Secretary of the Com- 
monwealth to this Board, which has investigated, given hear- 
ings and reported on the 63 applications noted below. Two 
cases were pending at the end of the year. In 2 other cases 
the petition w r as withdrawn, one before the hearing and one 
after. Report was made also in the case of 14 petitions pre- 
viously received and pending when the year began. Five of 
these are still pending.

1919) the Board has reported upon 533 applications for charters, 
446 of which were granted, 70 refused; 3 were withdrawn and

14 had not been acted upon by the Secretary of State up to 
November 30, 1919. In 54 other cases the applications were 
withdrawn before investigation. 

Inspection of Charitable Corporations. 

Chapter 379 of the Acts of 1909 requires the State Board of 
Charity to make annual inspection of charitable corporations 
which consent to said inspection. The text of the act is as 
follows : — 

Acts of 1909, Chapter 379. 

Section 1. The state board of charity, upon the request or 
with the consent of a charitable corporation which, under the 
provisions of section fourteen of chapter eighty-four of the Re- 
vised Laws, as amended by chapter four hundred and two of the 
acts of the year nineteen hundred and three, is required to make 
an annual report to said board, shall, at least once in every year, 
visit and inspect the institution or investigate the work of such 
corporation. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

Two hundred eight inspections have been made during the 
past year involving numerous conferences with directors and 
many visits to institutions. 

There have been 587 inquiries in regard to particular agencies 
and general matters connected with the field of private charity. 

Number and Classification of Incorporated Charities in Massa- 
chusetts. 

There are at the present time more than 1,000 corporations 
chartered as charities under the laws of the Commonwealth. 
Of these, substantially three-fourths remain in active operation 
and make annual returns to this Board as required by law. 

Of the 969 charitable corporations which made returns to 
this Board during 1919, 102 are homes for the aged; 122 are 
child-helping agencies; 197 are hospitals or other institutions 
for aiding the sick; 191 are agencies giving family aid; and 
130 are organizations doing neighborhood and club work. The 
remaining 227 corporations form a miscellaneous group chiefly 
civic or eleemosynary in their nature. 



Part II.] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. vii 

An analysis of the returns made in 1919 shows the total cap- 
ital, real and personal, of all these charities to be $130,216,- 
039.23. Incumbrances on real estate came to but $2,241,391.37. 
The total receipts for the year were $24,798,177.04, of which 
S6,338, 760.49 came from beneficiaries and 83,315,213.95 from 
investments. The total outgo for all purposes for the year 
was 823,392,675.79. These agencies reported 12,230 paid em- 
ployees. Instances of aid, though worthless as a total for sta- 
tistical purposes, indicate that this group of charities during 
the year in question rendered some sort of charitable assistance 
to over 1,000,000 separate individuals. 

The Place of the Private Organization in the Field of Charity. 

A question constantly arising in the disposition of cases that 
come to the attention of the State Board and to private chari- 
table organizations in Massachusetts is that of the right rela- 
tionship between public agencies and private instrumentalities 
in the field of relief. AYhere does private enterprise leave off 
and where shall public obligation begin? 

The answer to this question involves an examination of the 
objects of social service, and an inquiry into the nature of these 
two methods of effecting it. 

» 

The Purposes of Relief. 

The continuance of independence in citizenship under popu- 
lar government presupposes that each adult citizen shall support 
himself and those who by reason of blood relationship and fam- 
ily organization are dependent on him. If for any reason he is 
unable to carry this burden, either in whole or in part, such 
burden must be carried either by those who are his kin, or by 
those who know him and have a friendly interest in his welfare, 
or by those of philanthropic intent who may not know him 
but recognize his difficulty as a danger or drawback to society, 
or finally by the public as a whole acting through their govern- 
ment. 

In any event, the assistance given to the citizen has for its 
ultimate aim the conserving of individual health and of family 
standards for the sake ultimately of the welfare of the State. 
It must not stop with a mere impulsive act of kindness to the 



viii STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

person in distress; for kindness without more is unlikely to 
locate and satisfy the deeper need of which society should take 
cognizance. The welfare of every citizen is so bound "Up with 
that of society that the process of relief is at all times the exer- 
cise of functions which protect society and advance good gov- 
ernment. It is in its essentials a function of government. 

The Province of the Public Organization in Charity. 

If the application of charitable relief is a process essentially 
governmental, directed always to the welfare of citizens and 
hence to the protection of society, the limitations of govern- 
mental obligation therein should be easily defined. Whatever 
is necessary to be done to maintain the welfare of society be- 
comes the obligation of government, if it be not taken care of 
voluntarily by the citizen or groups of citizens organized for 
the purpose. But how shall the government know with cer- 
tainty either that any condition found to obtain does by en- 
dangering the individual constitute an injury to society, or 
that it constitutes such an injury as to warrant the government 
in attempting a remedy? It is this question which justifies 
the private charitable agency. 

The Nature of the Private Charitable Undertaking. 

A gift to charity constitutes in the law a trust fund for the 
public generally within the field designated by the terms of the 
gift. When, therefore, funds given to charitable uses are ad- 
ministered by a philanthropic agency, such agency becomes a 
trustee for the benefit of the public. The fund is in all essen- 
tials a public trust, and the trustees in its administration be- 
come trustees of a public use. If it be kept always clearly in 
mind that a private charity is a public trust the true relation- 
ship between such agencies and the government will be the 
more easily determined. 

The Two Types of Agencies in the Same Field. 
If the public agency should undertake the care of those 
groups of cases, such as the feeble-minded, whose need and 
treatment have been sufficiently determined for the govern- 



Part II.] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. ix 

ment to be warranted in establishing public provision for them, 
it follows that, in general, cases which involve long-continued 
dependency, such as cases of old age or widows with young 
children, should fall under public care. 

Problems of uncertain depth and undefined limits, and for 
which the process of remedy or correction cannot be said to 
have become established as a success, would fall naturally 
beyond the province of the government and be, therefore, 
proper objects for the private organization. To state it in 
briefer terms, the government should undertake the well-tried and 
fully demonstrated processes in social service, while the private 
agency should be the experimenter. For instance, the problem of 
the growing family in which either the father or the mother is 
feeble-minded ma\* be said to fall still upon the experimental 
side of the division just indicated. Courts are reluctant to 
break up such families unless the feeble-minded person consti- 
tutes an actual danger to life and limb. If one or more family 
agencies could carry on an intensive study of a group of such 
cases so that they would accumulate through a course of years 
accurate and specific data as to what happens to the children 
in a family of this sort, they could present evidence to the 
judges that might modify the quite proper judicial caution 
about breaking the family unit. 

To define in. still greater detail the interrelationship of the 
public and private instrumentalities, the following line of de- 
marcation should be followed : — 

1. The whole field of social service should be covered. 

2. Subject to statutory limitations, the public agency should 
assume — 

A. Cases of obvious dependency of long continuance, such as 
old age, incurable disease, etc. 

B. Cases of dependency which are not -complicated by other 
problems unless they are found to contain the prospect of 
practical reimbursement or an expectation of early rehabili- 
tation, or that involve an experimental feature: e.g., the 
foundling. 

C. Cases that call for restraint or other control of the person, 
including cases involving deportation or return to other States; 
e.g., the delinquent and the vagrant. 



x STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

D. Cases in which criminal prosecution is indicated at the 
outset as expedient, such as desertion and non-support. 

E. Cases in which experimentation by competent private 
agencies has reached such a stage that public opinion recog- 
nizes the value and the necessity of relief. The group of fami- 
lies contemplated by the mothers' aid law may be considered as 
falling under this head. 

3. The private agency should undertake — 

All cases not falling within the statutory powers of the 
public agency to assume, pending a demonstration to the public 
of the expediency of an enlargement of the statutory power to 
admit them to public care. 

The Attitude of the Private Charity 'toward Public 

Agencies. 

Considering this rough division of the field the function of 
the private agency should be primarily educational. Its object 
may be, w T ithin the terms of its written purpose, the care of the 
aged, the rescue of children, or the relief of the sick, but its 
ultimate object must be not merely to palliate or remove suffer- 
ing and neglect, but also to demonstrate to the public mind 
the nature of the problems with which it is dealing, and the 
methods it has followed successfully, to the end that the public 
may determine whether taxes shall be used for the purpose of 
continuing that method so that the individual may be bene- 
fited and the welfare of the whole people advanced. 

Annual Reports of Charitable Corporations. 

The law provides that the Board shall receive annual reports 
of all charitable corporations whose personal property is exempt 
from taxation, and for the dissolution of corporations which 
fail for two consecutive years to report to this Board. The text 
of the law is as follows (Revised Laws, chapter 84, section 14, 
amended by Acts of 1903, chapter 402, amended by Acts of 
1913, chapter 82): — 

Section 1. A charitable corporation whose personal property 
is exempt from taxation under the provisions of clause three of 
section five of chapter twelve shall annually, on or before the 



Part II.] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. xi 

first day of November, make to the state board of charity a 
written or printed report for its last financial year, showing its 
property, its receipts and expenditures, the whole number and 
the average number of its beneficiaries and such other informa- 
tion as the board may require. If any corporation subject to the 
provisions of this act shall fail for two successive years to file 
the said report, the supreme judicial court, upon application by 
the state board of charity, after notice and a hearing may decree 
a dissolution of the corporation. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon the first day of 
November in the year nineteen hundred and thirteen. 

Of 985 corporations whose returns were called for during the 
last official year, 170 failed to respond and 93 were received too 
late to be printed. The remaining 722 corporations filed re- 
ports. The names of the delinquent corporations follow: —
